- I had a quick look at the above, and it's libraries _plus_
- netscape. It'd be nice if they had just the libraries as a
- separate rpm/tar/whatever...
Yes, it would have been nice..
But, I didn't let that stop me.. I went a head and
generated an emulators/osf1 package using that RPM as the basis.
I've submitted the new package via send-pr, and put a
tarball of it up at ftp.cirr.com:/pub/NetBSD/pkgsrc/emulators-osf1.tgz.
(hmm, should it be named emulators/osf1_compat instead?)
