I also have a cross compilation tool chain for building a linux
distribution _under NetBSD_ based on:

- a lot of linux source packages by Jeremy C. Reed (thanks Jeremey!)

- Linux from scratch documentation:

- Dan Kegel's cross compilation tools:

These are about 50 packages which I'll upload to pkgsrc-wip during the
next weeks.

I could get such a compiled system (including kernel) to boot halfway
through (so basically, the binaries work), but the rc system I used
made the system hang.

I could use such a setup too for compiling with pkg_comp (at that
time by creating linux "sets" for the makeroot target, but the null
mounting is much more elegant IMO).

My "dream" is still to have a linux distribution with a NetBSD rc system
and being able to automatically generate a Xen Linux domain (either DOMU
or DOM0) from pkgsrc.
