Yeah, but Andrew's talking about FSF/Cygnus internal use.
Last I looked, they generated a vendor string and then 
use <arch>-*-netbsd in the /bin/sh case statements.
otherwise: yeah, same effect as I suggested. After the fuss is over,
we can go back to * for vendor.

I deont think testing for specific files works, as an elf-vs-aout
test. Sickos like me build all sorts of bits of -current, in a.out
format, on 1.4O kernels. (Most of my machines are in "production" use,
so still have 1.4.1 userland, with additions..)
