Hmm, I just compared the dependstree, order and index files for
NetBSD/amd64, NetBSD/mipseb, IRIX64 and IRIX, and unfortunately there
are differences between all of them. So in order to allow for
preserving bulk-cache files across different architectures is not really
The only time this would save us work, then, would be if one had one
very fast machine of a specific architecture and one rather slow one,
using the slow one to bulk-build... ie, it doesn't make sense.
This one's tricky. You have to use imaginary numbers, like eleventeen...
