A binary compiled on an hp300 will not run on an amiga and vice-versa...

./more: Exec format error. Wrong Architecture.

Amiga binary:
./more: NetBSD/m68k demand paged dynamically linked executable

hp300 binary:
/usr/bin/more: NetBSD/m68k4k demand paged dynamically linked executable

I do know that hp300 binaries will run on the sun3 (same type), 
considering how we compiled a kernel for a sun3 on an hp300 and it
