i think that that statement is broken to begin with.  8-)

In order for CVSup to be used as an official distribution method, i
think, at the very minimum, the server and client must run natively --
not under emulation -- on various NetBSD platforms.

That can mean "installed from pkgsrc."  But it can't mean "installed
from pkgsrc by grabbing a bunch of emulated binaries from another
system, and running them under emulation."

I.e. in order for this to be an officially supported service, as far
as i'm concerned, you need m3 running on at least a few NetBSD
platforms; see my previous mail.
