With regards to the porting effort and the currently unsupported Macs:

It seems to me that one should be able to take the MacBSD code, load it up
under something like Linux or NetBSD on a PC, create a version of gcc as a
cross-compiler, and work on developing support for the as yet unsupported
Macs. Transfering the kernel image could be done serially or via floppies and
something like Suntar. My point in all of this is that there are a lot of 
different Macs out there, and apparently, very few developers at this point.
Perhaps a few of the would-be developers like myself can help out in the porting
effort now without having a working kernel for their own machine (like my IIsi).
