i386 can, but amd64 can't it seems, but probably could without
too much effort.  eg, in gdb/configure.tgt:

x86_64-*-netbsd* | x86_64-*-knetbsd*-gnu)
        # Target: NetBSD/amd64
        gdb_target_obs="amd64-tdep.o amd64nbsd-tdep.o i386-tdep.o i387-tdep.o \
                        nbsd-tdep.o solib-svr4.o"

is missing i386bsd-tdep.o that supports a.out.  other amd64
targets have it, so it should compile and maybe work.
