I would be very interested in this.  The gdb-bdm driver and patches at currently support SCO, Linux, and
FreeBSD, and I imagine for someone with NetBSD driver experience it
would not be a difficult job to port the driver.

NetBSD has slowly overtaken Linux at home and work as my OS of choice,
and the BDM driver is one of the few remaining reasons I still run Linux
at work.
