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 http://www.netbsd.org/contrib/projects.html
