It's ten minutes work to patch and another hour to rebuild NetBSD 1.4

This is why many people would be upset if support for the more obscure
platforms was dropped. I have an acorn32 machine (probably one of the rarely uses ports although relatively easy to maintain compared to some due to it being an arm architecture) which needs keeping up to date with security patches. I'd be completely stuffed if support for this platform was dropped.
