yes, although the version I've tried is now about two months old.
What I've tried was a standard build, i.e. with native java and using
the internal versions of the helper programs. There aren't that many
patches required, mostly it affects things where NetBSD itself has
changed (statfs -> statvfs and similar things).
A short function test worked, but I haven't tried anything more
A version without java wouldn't work, but Linux people, IIRC mainly the
Debian people, were preparing patches to fix this.
