By the way, "nget" builds native and runs fine on NetBSD 1.6.2 and on 
2.0_BETA. It's a little tricky to build the CVS checkout, because it 
expects a local copy of uulib to be in the build tree. (The tarballs 
are all set up with that, but they're not updated as frequently.) I've 
been meaning to create patches to build against an installed uulib, 
and package it all. I recommend checking out the Sourceforge CVS and 
giving it a try. The pace of development is slow, yet active -- the 
author, Matthew Mueller has been very responsive to inquiries in the 
Sourceforge forum, and to "doesn't build" reports.
