nobody seems to care.
Someone cares (besides me, that is). Indeed, NetBSD might have
lost a user over it.
Anybody who cares (and has the necessary time and skill) is
welcome to pick up 80386 support again, but it should probably go
into a different port, not the same port that currently supports
80486 and higher CPUs.
We do have a naming problem, in that the port whose name is "i386"
no longer supports actual 80386 CPUs, so it's not clear what name
should be used for a port with resurrected support for 80386, but
I am sure that could be worked out.
