Well send-pr is just a script that sets up a template to help you edit
an e-mail message with the required (er, desired) structure for GNATS.

If you run send-pr on FreeBSD (or any other system) it should still be
possible to manually fix the parts of the template that are specific to
FreeBSD, in particular the destination address, so that you can still
submit the final report to NetBSD's GNATS system -- that's the beauty of
GNATS being fundamentally e-mail based (as opposed to one of those
fundamentally web based problem tracking systems).
