As you may have noticed, I've recently made versions of ezm3 for
NetBSD/alpha and NetBSD/sgimips (actually, should be able to run on any=

NetBSD/mipseb), ref. my posting on Sep 08 to current-users under the
subject "ezm3 for alpha and sgimips".

In the process I tried to factor out the code which is machine-specific=
big-endian/little-endian, 32-bit/64-bit etc. specific; the diffs might =
a reasonable starting point.  I also made some notes for what needs to =
touched to make a new ezm3 port, which are included in the diffs.

Myself, I don't have a DragonFly machine to test a port on, or to extra=
the required port-specific information from.
