   Um, no.  Arches that started as ELF (ppc?,mipseb) orhave been ELF for
   years (alpha, mipsel) and currently use "netbsd" even though they are
   ELF. So assuming that "netbsd" means "a.out" seems kinda wdrong.

"um, no." nothing.  i was talking about ports that have recently done
the ELF conversion or are about to -- i386 sparc & m68k.  what i said
holds true for these.  i wasn't clear on this -- but it is what i meant.
