Sorry I've been busy.  I think it is cool to commit.  I've heard of
no objections and I've built both NetBSD and my own SSlr* etc trees
using it.

I'm about to head to SFO to catch a plane... I can commit it
when I get home (allow 24hrs).

BTW, anyone heard of ODE (OSF Dev Env)?  According to one of my 
collegues here the pmake in ODE has a couple of _very_ cool
features.  I plan on adding them to our make and/or my portable
bmake.  I'll post more when I've had a look at the ODE 
pmake and worked out how easy that will be.
