Yeah the code needed to build it all has been commited by Peter Postma.
I have uploaded a release from -current from a couple of days ago.
Under OpenBSD on the zaurus create a CF card with FFS on the primary
partition then you can install a NetBSD GENERIC modified to boot wd1a.
There merely point the OpenBSD bootloader to boot the netbsd kernel.
Obviously the kernel would have to be on the root of the OpenBSD
