Although I am not a NetBSD developer, I will mention AT&T UWIN here.
The concept is interesting in that it can put the same development
environment across many different UNIX platforms as well as Microsoft
Back in 1996-1997 I was working for Samsung, in their network equipment
design laboratory. We were planning to do a network appliance with NetBSD
as the embedded OS. Since the developers there were already working on
other products using PSOS and VXWORKS unders windows, it was considered
a "good thing" to have a NetBSD development environment that would do
cross-compiles under NT and allow downloads to the appliance hardware.
I used UWIN to start hacking at something like the above. Unfortunately,
when Korea had there economic downturn, Samsung closed down our lab.
