At one time, over four months ago, it was Debian Linux testing/unstable
(older than 3.0).

But no longer. The kernel, X, libtool, gcc, vixie-cron, sh-utils, netkit,
galeon, everything, is a new Linux distro. (Of course, all built using
NetBSD's great pkgsrc!)

Soon I will be announcing this. (I was partly waiting because I thought I
heard that bootstrap-pkgsrc was going to be announced to the world.)
