Right.  The sun3 port was not far enough along for a full release
when 1.0 was prepared.  You can get the latest binaries via:

	ftp (anonymous)
	cd /pub/NetBSD/arch/sun3
	get doc.sun3.tar.gz

You may want to read the doc files and come back for the rest.

I just updated netbsd-gen.gz so it supports the VME machines.

There are notes on compilation in the doc files mentioned above.

With good humor!
