I am trying to build some of the packages in the pkgsrc directory and
having some frustration.
Some packages return a
"Pkg-blah-1.9.x- is not available for NetBSD-1.5.1-mipsel" which is
However many packages are simply crashing upon compile with the

Whilst I appreciate the effort you guys have gone to with producing this
