I was thinking about getting back into the NetBSD/dc thing. A while ago 
when the port was first released I managed to get a web server going on 
the dc (got on slashdot too, well, the bsd section at least), but I soon 
lost interest

I agree that the hardware support is probably done for the dreamcast 
port. I think what needs to be done now is general sh3/4 stuff. What I'd 
like most now is to get all the ELF stuff straightened out and possibly 
a nice cross compiler package. Its not easy getting an elf cross 
compiler setup now. I'm not sure how I managed to get it working the 
first time. Even when I did get the elf compiler going, I still couldn't 
compile any userland stuff, the kernel is all I  could do. My whole 
userland was coff.

I see there is a hpcsh elf snapshot now. Maybe I'll check that out. 
What's the latest on the cross compiler situation? Some patches and 
instructions were posted here several months ago, is there anything
