[20050607] Userland NetBSD: cross-building pkgsrc
Kirster Walfridsson has (finally :-) imported his pkgsrc cross-building support that he introduced at EuroBSDCon 2004 (paper) into pkgsrc. The system is really running a full NetBSD userland with CPU emulation, trapping known cpu instructions, system calls and esp. exec(2)ing known native binaries (ls, crosscompiling cc/gcc) to speed things up a lot -- the result are pkgsrc builds that run about in real time for the real compile jobs. A restriction right now is that it works to build for NetBSD/arm 1.6.2 right now.
