Thank you, that was useful. I found the replace and use_ things and at
least some of the things that bootstrap wants to find in /usr/bin/ or
/bin/ and will ignore if they're in path elsewhere. Fixing that gets
around a lot. It seems to fail in installing packages (f2c most often
IIRC) and I've found core files left by qemu-arm but no real messages
about what's happened.

Having pkgsrc off-device was an interesting idea, but I think I'm
abandoning that for now. I don't particularly need it for my current
plans. I might try again if I ever install compilers on the device

I appear to be temporarily using gmail's horrible interface. I
apologise for any failure in my part in trying to make it do the right
thing with post formatting.
