I suggest the text below to be added to,
section #suggested-other.  Since there seems to be some interest in
a port, perhaps a port-pdp10 mailing list could be created?  If so,
please change the contact address below.

    "PDP-10" is the commonly used name for the processor architecture
    used in the DECsystem-10 and DECSYSTEM-20 mainframes.  The first
    version of the architecture, with an 18-bit address space, would
    not be suitable for a port.  However, a later version of the
    architecture extended the address space to 30-bits.  A NetBSD port
    should be possible as soon as the
    <a href="">PDP-10 GCC port</a> is
    ready.  It wouldn't require access to a real machine to start
    development since the
    <a href="">KLH10</a> emulator
    supports the extended architecture.
