That package is way too old. You can cross build to linux from NetBSD/i386
using emulators/suse_devel. Unfortunately, that one's a little out of date,
too. We really need an "suse91_devel" (and suse91_slang, and a few others).
I'm curious -- just what sort of package requires a linux cross-compiler?
