This is true in some sense, but not true if you mix versions. Config
is target-version dependend, that's why you use /usr/cross/bin/nbconfig
instead of config (and that's why I have a something like /usr/cross
and /usr/cross-1.6 on my machine).

The "build-script" is just wrong. Leave it out.
The docs on www.netbsd.org have already been updated.
