How to crossbuild on Cygwin
For those poor people that are forced to use Windows and who still
want to (cross)build NetBSD, there's help now: Izumi Tsutsui
instructions on how to crossbuild NetBSD on Cygwin.
It assumes Windows XP and Cygwin 1.5.25.
Basically the venture boils down to a simple
``sh build.sh -m i386 -U release'', but the
real art is in setting up the build environment with
all those packages that you have installed on a decent
Unix system by default.
 Speaking of a 'decent' Unix system: I've had the joy to
setup pkgsrc on a minimal Debian installation the other day,
and it's amazing what list of standard Unix tools it's lacking:
g++ (compiler plus headers; gcc was there, but without headers),
bsd-mail / mailx.
