With FreeBSD's i386-elf.hal.o.uu in place of athhal-elf.o.uue, I get:

        link  NET4801/netbsd
athhal-elf.o(.text+0x139a): In function `zz033e8fbf':
: undefined reference to `ath_hal_memzero'

: undefined reference to `ath_hal_memzero'
athhal-elf.o(.text+0xc68b): more undefined references to 
`ath_hal_memzero' follow

I briefly looked at diffs for the other required files but this is 
somewhat beyond me, so I'll happily wait 'till Feb 2 :-)
