DDB has some rather serious faults on NetBSD/mac68k.

1. Within the debugger, the backtrace is completely useless. All it shows is 
"cpu_debugger" and nothing prior.

2. Upon attempting to exit the debugger by issuing a continue command, the 
debugger _will_ exit, but upon pressing enter twice to attempt to retrieve the 
shell prompt, the system will promptly panic with an Illegal Instruction trap 
within the kernel.
