This asumes that Atari, Amiga and the Mac-port are finally binary-compatible.
Are they? (I dont now)

I vote for 020. Everything else is downward-compatible. The 060-optimization
of the GCC is, err, non-existant.

Does that matter? If so, how about 386 and Pentium - common base.

Noone needs to carry all the stuff. I rather think we should distribute
the stuff to several servers. How about ftp.pkg-68000.netbsd.org,
ftp.pkg-i386.netbsd.org and so forthn, and one master like ftp.pgk.netbsd.org.
FreeBSD has a slightly other attempt: ftp.contry.freebsd.org,
ftp2.country.freebsd.org and so forth. But we have several ports to cover...
