Sort of.  My binutils is just stock binutils-000413 (i.e. a recent Cygnus
snapshot) configured with --target=arm-acorn-elf.  GCC is gcc-2.95.2 using
arm/netbsd.h with arm/elf.h instead of arm/aout.h (and a few other tweaks).
I suspect in either case, backporting the changes into the standard NetBSD
toolchain will be interesting, and a lot more work than I've done so far.

Oh, and ld.elf_so still needs ARM support.  I didn't want to work on it till
I'd got fork(2) working reliably.
