I don't think I'd try to use _either_ NetBSD *or* Solaris/x86 as a platform
for running the Linux Oracle 8i server code.  Heck, it doesn't even work
well if your flavor of Linux varies too much from what they developed/tested
it with.  :-(

I think Christos has some experience trying to run the Linux Oracle under
our emulation; I've carboned him.
