I was wondering if someone could put down briefly and to the point, 
what the NetBSD "elf" related shortcomings are.

Here's my shallow understanding of the situation.

- libsa has no standalone support for kernel modules, does not 
understand all elf header types.
- There are shortcomings related to kernel module linking, which uses 
userspace ld ( for what ? How ? )

It would be could to have a concise elf related feature "wishlist" for 
NetBSD. It would probably make a well deserved
"projects" entry at
