I've been speculating about the best way for me to compile large quantities 
of code without having to use the slow old 3000/300 here to do it. There are 
some DS10s in the office, but they're all running RedHat and nobody can 
spare me one as a NetBSD box. :(

Anyway ... is it possible to compile for NetBSD on a GNU/Linux Alpha box? 
Where would you start with setting up an enviroment like that?

Any pointers appreciated. It's probably simpler to grab an old Intel machine 
and cross-compile from NetBSD that way, but I'm into doing things the 
perverse way. If it's terribly difficult, I won't worry about it ...
