Re: netbsd-10, merging device-streams (xstreamtodev, rdbinfo)

Hi David,

Sent twice because I forgot to reply to all. My bad.

Yes. I imagine the reason only rdbinfo and xstreamtodev binaries were
included before has to do with the install guide referencing exactly
these two.

This is no issue. I'll get this done in the repo shortly. Then it
should be OK to just copy it over.

It would be nice to have. I do not know how hard this would be.

Trying to run bebbo's script for preparing crossdev toolchain on
netbsd would be a starting point. (I have only ever used Linux for
AmigaOS crossdev)

I might give it a try soon, on my previous x86 box (core2quad), where
I have my x86 netbsd setup (which is 9.3 or a 10 snapshot, I haven't
turned that machine on for months now).

 Expectation is for it to blow up but it needs to be attempted regardless.

I am OK with GPL+BSD licensing my changes.

Thank you again for looking into this.
