It looks like the most effort efficient option. So I installed the daily build of netbsd-10 with very good results: X11R7 in full color; as stated before, speed is not great but it is usable.

I just uploaded a video capture of my Amiga 1200 running it here [1]. Please ignore the sporadic screen blinking, it is a minor use with my capture hardware, nothing to do with NetBSD itself. The default window manager configuration is far better than the one I was using until now from netbsd-7.2, I am quite happy with it.

By the way, I am really missing wget and curl from the pkgsrc repository. I am using the 10.0_2022Q4 [2]. Is this the correct one?
