...the above doesn't really matter; but the relavent machine
is an AMD64, not this i386. (^&
NetBSD/amd64 has a joy(4) interface and man-page, but lacks
This causes, e.g., freeglut to fail to compile.
Install NetBSD/amd64 and look for "joystick.h".
Due to the closeness of the architectures, and the desirability of
a common API, I assume that the i386 header provides all that is
required. It should suffice to just copy the header over.
I do not actually have a joystick, so I cannot comment on whether
this causes code to abuse the interface.
