    netatalk doesn't have support for NetBSD; it doesn't build as a
kernel module either (and given the current network architecture under
NetBSD, it *can't* work as a loadable module).

    I did play with porting it a little bit awhile back, but other
tasks ended up diverting my time and I never got it to the point of
even compiling.  If anyone is interested in the (rather insubstantial)
work that I've done at this point, ask me.
