NetBSD 8 will be coming soon. The last time I checked, gcc on NetBSD 7 and
current still don't work on VAX. This means that there'll no longer be an
active version of NetBSD/VAX that can compile code.
Is anyone working on this? What needs to be done?
The state in -current is not that bad, it can compile quite a bit of
pkgs natively. Perl needs work (floating point format issues, not compiler
related), which blocks a lot other pkgs.
The hacks that Felix mentioned should be fixed, but currently they do not
hurt a lot.
You know that we haven't been able to build native in years? Maybe not
in about 10 years... I have tested from time to time, without success.
Most others seem to not have tried in eons.
So, while it would be good if you are right, I would not put too much
money on "it's mostly good".
