Right. Working "ok" on "some platforms". It, however, is not capable
of compiling the NetBSD kernel nor several parts of NetBSD's userland.

Let me clarify:
hppa-netbsd no (I simply have had no time to work on this)
m68010-netbsdelf yes (should work as well as m68k-netbsdelf,
at least, but no PIC support on 68010)
m68k-netbsdelf yes (at least, I think so; I haven't had time
to finish a full bootstrap on my hp380)
ns32k-netbsd yes (a.out, binutils does not support PIC)
powerpc-netbsd almost-yes (there is an ABI mismatch with
our in-tree 2.95.3 that needs
to be addressed in the 3.3 code
sh5-netbsd yes (but there are bugs in the SH5
target that still need to be fixed,
vax-netbsdelf no (the configuration is there, but GCC 3.3
does not support PIC code on the VAX; we
didn't have time to feed all those changes
back in; PIC code is required by NetBSD
on the VAX using ELF)
