Cross-compiling ??? You can perfectly compile a NetBSD/sparc 1.4 kernel on
a 1.3.3 release, I've done it myself and it works OK, so just compile! 

BTW, I should use a NetBSD/sparc _release_ version, dunno if it's allready
ELF, but sure a lot more stable! i.e.

First compiling and installing `config' (make; make intall) and then 
configuring and building the kernel should do the trick,
