That's a really strange answer to give, Wilko, since as you know
NetBSD supports the same systems that FreeBSD does, plus a couple
more. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the only system type added
by FreeBSD the 6600? That's the main type that appeared after
FreeBSD imported the NetBSD code to start their port. (And it's
one also added by NetBSD, of course.)

Anyway, I'll correspond with MP privately and send him a kernel.
But thanks for being so helpful!
