So wouldn't it be fine to generate amiga- and all sort of other binaries on
your PC?

(I for myself have the problem here taht i have /amiga running, but can't build
anything for the el-cheapo-PC i got for free and which refuses to run NetBSD.
And it's *no* fun compiling things on and FTPing them with
the current network connection).

Furthermore, with working corsscompiliers, one could compile packages for
several platforms, so something like the Linsux-CD-distributions would be a bit
closer (if that's wanted at all, i know packages another hot iron :-)
