Re: Building Linux packages on NetBSD

I don't recommend using pkgsrc on Linux without PREFER_PKGSRC, tbh.
That's asking for trouble (see posts on this list from Linux users...)
Make sure everything pkgsrc expects is installed (compilers, flex, etc).
I wouldn't recommend mixing up packages from different distributions,
and keep the set of installed Linux packages to a minimum.

NVMM is the KVM equivalent for NetBSD (~ish, different semantics, less
privilege granted to the kernel), `-accel nvmm` as an argument to
qemu after `modload nvmm`. Building from pkgsrc in nvmm is pretty fast,
from experience.
