System: [sent from a machine with nothing pertaining to bwi(4); my PowerBook is
out of commission this week]
I have ported the bwi(4) driver from OpenBSD and DragonFlyBSD
to NetBSD. I use it regularly in the netbsd-4 branch, I have
built and tested it in the netbsd-5 branch, and I have ported
it also to -current as of a month or two ago and successfully
built it but have not tested it.
Install NetBSD on a PowerBook G4 with an AirPort Extreme card.
Grumble at the absence of wifi support.

Consider importing the firmware into pkgsrc, like that for
