Thanks for the information.  Shall I add this quote to the pkgsrc guide?

Speaking of broken programs, I haven't been able to get wine to run in
NetBSD since sometime around the update on January 14, 2005.  Before
that time, I had it working with DLL files from my Windows XP Pro
partition.  Since it broke, winecfg hangs and wine itself it fails with
wine: failed to initialize: mmap of entire address space failed: Cannot
allocate memory

Does wine work on NetBSD for anyone else?
