Okay .. so how much of this wager is crosscompiling on linux/$hardware
(Tee Two EssDeeEee) vs. $random_os/$random_hardware (NetBSD/pkgsrc)..
I'd think the former is easier given a random package list of
'alsa-lib,alsa-driver,alsa-firmware,alsa-oss' inflating the package
count in their favor.. how many breakout packages would NetBSD itself be
anyway? does that count?
pkgsrc / netbsd / bsd-libc / random hardware is probably a tougher
target just by nature of being more 'obscure' for
looks to me like this t2 thing is mostly 'build linux apps for any
hardware' instead of 'build packages for any os and any hardware' ...
a better wager might be for
for example how about if the bet is for crosscompiling with either build
system against say vax/ultrix, osf/alpha or aix/ppc with the native
just hate to see ya lose a silly bet on unequal territory :)
