I have the following problem, any answer, pointer of RTFM is 
appreciated. I have an i386 laptop with NetBSD on it, say version X. 
This machine is quite slow, so I'd use another i386 box for nuilding 
packages for it, which runs another NetBSD version, say Y.

Now, what is the preferred way to build a handful of packages on 
NetBSD-Y-i386, with the target of NetBSD-X-i386, so that the resulting 
binaries will surely and reliably run on the targeted machine?

For that matter, in this case X is Release 1.6.2, and Y is 1.6W; but I'd 
like a generic solution which doesn't assume those two particular versions.
