smartos pxe: operation not permitted

I have downloaded the latest SmartOS image (20140904T175324Z) suitable for PXE booting.
Unpacking such file, platform-20140904T175324Z.tgz, and following the steps like the ones described here,, I stumbled in an error that prevent the server to boot. This problem had never happened with previous releases.

Operation not permitted (
Could not boot image: Operation not permitted (

Visiting the proposed link, and looking at Apache log file (I've configured iPXE to download the images via HTTP) I found where the problem was.

 [Wed Sep 10 xx:xx:xx 2014] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /srv/tftp/images/smartos/20140904T175324Z/platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive

Untarring the image file, the permission on the boot_archive file was 600 and not 644 as expected, and as it has been up to now.
