I did get an email back from a D'Arcy about sending some patches to 
update the port site, so I'll spend the weekend working on that but it 
might be a few days since I've been busy in our post-Katrina city... 
Mainly the site needs to make some mention that there are updated 
versions of the Restore CD out there and available.    I now know that 
the NetBSD team won't host them, but links to the list-serv posts here 
need to be made announcing them or something along those lines.
