I wonder how other OSes and other package managers, or lack of package manager,
get along without osabi.
If I try pkgsrc in Linux, then I run into osabi difficulties if I choose
between several kernels?
It could also be a nuisance to one who tracks NetBSD-current.
But I am not sufficiently satisfied with NetBSD 5.99.44 to want to build any
packages, at least until I can go into X and exit back to a visible text-mode
console, which I can not do in either NetBSD 5.1 release or stable, or 5.99.44..
