[20100809] Of course it runs ... 2.11BSD (or: PDP-11 in a FPGA)
It's about time NetBSD gets the PDP11 port done: the PDP-11/70 CPU core is now available as implementation on a FPGA-board, and there's need for a newer operating system than 2.11BSD! Citing from the homepage:

``The project contains a complete PDP-11 system: a 11/70 CPU with memory management unit, but without floating point unit, a basic set of UNIBUS peripherals (DL11, LP11, PC11, RK11/RK05), and last but not least a cache and memory controllers for SRAM and PSRAM. The design is FPGA proven, runs currently on Digilent S3BOARD and NEXYS2 boards and boots 5th Edition UNIX and 2.11BSD UNIX. ''
