I was at the Systems computer fair yesterday, and the "T2" project was
near us. They claim that their packaging system can compile about 50% of
the 2.500 pkgs in their "T2" packaging system as crosscompiling.
Uli Habel tried to convince me that NetBSD will have that within six
months too - unfortunately he didn't accept my bet on it, so here we are:
First one to get pkgsrc in a shape that >1.000 packages can be
crosscompiled by bulk builds within six months (i.e. by, say, May 1st
2008), will get the twice amount I was willing to bet yesterday, i.e.
200EUR in total.
 I know 200EUR is peanuts on a real scale, but for a poor
PhD student, it's a bit. Maybe others want to add to that.
