But thats why some people are very eager at getting cross-compiling to

Just fancy cgd setting up kind of a compile server on one of his
NetBSD/Alphas... you send him an e-mail with a magic subject line and
the configuration file in the body, and 10 minutes (times current queue
length) later it sends you back a kernel and a log file, tarred and
fea^H^H^Hgzipped and MIME-Encoded.

It could even maintain a cache of recently built kernels/descriptions,
or we could make sure all config file dependencies are really in the files, so that make depend && make always works...
