OK.  What was the development system (Reno?), and if so, in the 1.0A,
could the precursor system binaries run directly in 1.0A?

I finally got a working 4.3-Tahoe system up, and was thinking of trying
a pcc port for some comparisons on a NetBSD 1.0A and a 1.4.3 system,
if possible (assuming I can make a viable pcc port).  That would help
answer some possible gcc bloat things I was thinking about.
