[20070806] Cross-compiled Sparc packages for testing
Joerg Sonnenberger is working on cross-compiling X applications as part of this year's xpkgsrc Summer of Code project. He has a first set of cross-compiled X binaries for NetBSD/sparc up and is looking for testers -- please get back to him directly! :)

Currently, NetBSD's X is built using a framework of reachover-Makefiles that mirror the existing Imakefiles, and use NetBSD's cross-toolchain. With X.org moving towards a heavily autoconf-based framework, the idea is to use the 'native' X.org build environment (configure, ...), and use NetBSD's wrapper-framework in pkgsrc to use its crosscompiler instead of a native compiler.
