    I realize this seems an odd question, but I feel compelled to ask it 
    I have a lot of old computer games and such which run under Dos, and 
which a Windows screen reader has a lot of trouble with.  I don't even have 
Dos on this PC anymore.  So...I felt I might have some luck if I could run 
them under NetBSD's Doscmd, via a VmWare virtual machine which my screen 
reader could then read.  It's a fairly complicated setup, actually.
    Anyway, I've tried to compile Doscmd via pkgsrc.  The message I get 
claims it isn't available for NetBSD i386?  Checking the DESCR file, it 
would seem to be...
    Have I any other option?  Is this port just broken beyond repair?
