Some how it didn't get on the alpha snapshot, also ld.so didn't make
it either. This is strange since it did compile and was on my primary
partition, I use a clean partition to make a snapshot. The only thing I did
differently was to redirect the output of the output to /dev/null.
I have just built a new snapshot and will release it later this week.

I am not sure how much trouble you are in (
Can you use a statically linked version of ftp, tar, etc ...?
I generated a crunched binary for the install floppies/miniroot
I could upload the crunched binary, that is 819K. This binary
is 'ls mv ln cp mount tar chmod chown ftp tip ....' all rolled
into binary run. If I understand right after you get that binary
to your AMIGA ADOS side then :
To get it to NetBSD.
Boot up into NetBSD
mount -tados -r /dev/DISK /mnt
cp -p /mnt/.../instbin /
ln -s /instbin /bin/tar
ln -s /instbin /bin/ftp
ln -s /instbin /bin/ifconfig
ln -s /instbin /bin/pppd
(Could also create hard links)
If this binary contains the command, creating a link to it with the name of
the command will allow you to access it, because the argv is probably
used to get at the correct code.
This compressed binary has about 50 commands statically linked in.
The file will be called instbin-1.1 (NOT COMPRESSED/ and ready to use)
and will be on:
as a temporary measure.
I will be uploading a new snapshot that built last night,
after I will check more carefully to make sure major components are there.
