That is actually minor concern. I picked SuSE as the base for the
package a long time ago because it was the Linux distribution
we used at work.

One could argue that we should continue to use a ".rpm" based
distribution because we have "rpm2pkg". But considering that the
RPM version in "pkgsrc" is ancient it probably doesn't matter.

If somebody provides better Linux kernel support I could probably
be convinced to write "deb2pkg" which would allow us to provide
Debian based Linux emulation packages.

        Kind regards
