hi, i'm quite new to the netbsd world, but since now i had 
oppportunities to spot its advantages, bringing old boxes to a new 

my experience took me to notice that (eg ) the mysql-server package 
on a quadra700 (netbsd-mac68k) takes more than 9 hours to compile, 
while on aPowerBook G3 400 (netbsd-macppc) it takes less than 1 hour.

Is there somewhere a tutorial on how to "make package" on the 
netbsd-macppc, using netbsd-mac68k as a target?

Do I have to build the stuff contained into pkgsrc/cross ?

A quick look at the DOCs into the site seem to treat 
croos-compiling just for the kernal building process.

TIA, Matteo.
