It's been many months since I cross-compiled or attempted to cross-compile 
NetBSD from FreeBSD!

All my recent troubles have been building from NetBSD-current amd64, or in one 
case, from NetBSD 6.1_STABLE amd64.

For cross-compiling from FreeBSD, the purpose of a newer GCC than 4.2.1 would 
be to better build the tools, then the tools take over.

I never tried to avoid building the toolchain.

Are serial terminals still available?  How does one capture debugger and kernel 
messages in the case of a crash with currently available hardware?
