Not only on OSX. So far I haven't been able to get NetBSD newer than
4.01 (both i386 and amd64) running on Solaris and Windows hosts
either. Same on the beta 3.0 version of VirtualBox.

I am quite happy that today I managed to get 5.99.14 running at last
properly (almost*) on XenServer 5.5, though. Earlier versions failed
on XenServer 5.0. So now I have quite fast (Core I7) host to run
pkgsrc builds on.

gray vertical bands, instead of black background (you can type
commands blindly, though).
