Yes, the netbsd-generic is compiled and should work on most amiga including
picasso. Only the cybervision doesn't work I believe.

I have both gcc 2.4.5, and 2.7.0. I use 2.4.5 to rebuild the distribution
and 2.7.0 to build all the extra stuff(/usr/local/bin).
I believe, (have tried), that inorder
to provide a working kernel with 2.7.0 that you need to link in
the memory allocation code from libc, I could be wrong.
