	Hello.  I have been a NetBSD user for many years, and all of my
Unixish machines are now running NetBSD of one version or another.  I now
find I may have to write an application wich links against some
Linux-binary-only libraries.  In the past, when I've tried to do this, I've
found that ld complains and I've not been able to compile NetBSD-native
programs linked against Linux-binary modules.  In the past, I was able to
find work arounds, but this time, I may be unable to use those same
options.  So, my question for the group is, is there a way to link NetBSD
object files against Linux-binary objects, assuming the underlying machine
architectures are the same?  For example, in this case, using I386 Linux
library files against NetBSD native objects?
