Thanks for the info. I had a play around and checked the NetBSD partition and
it looked fine. I noticed some comments about the RPI being picky about the
SDHC cards and so built it on a different 4gb card. This got me a lot further
in that it started to go multiuser and init crapped out. May be an issue with
my cross build as using the statically linked init in /rescue got to the point
of trying to execure the rc stuff, but all the programs failed with signal 11.
Probably something's wrong with the stuff in /lib.
