This worked great, modulo a few things:
(1) `file' is no longer cross-build friendly as it tries to build
the compressed magic file using the newly built executable.
I kluged around this by adding it to the 'tools' build and
hacking the makefile to use the native file if $FILE is set.
(2) I had to add lib/libvers to tools so that compile_et would
(3) share/zoneinfo isn't very friendly when the build is done as
non-root (haven't fixed this yet, may just try a build as root).
I did get past all the nastiness encountered trying to use the pkgsrc
cross-tools, though. I am interested, even if only academically, why
those tools don't work...
