Good day to all,

Sorry if this is a wrong mailing list for my question just curious where to 
ask :)

Background: @work we primary using BSD systems i.e. NetBSD and FreeBSD for 
servers, workstations and so on. Due to historical reasons we do not use 

Input: we got some project which requires to develop software for the 
following target - Intel PXA255 ARM CPU/Linix 2.4.x kernel. Software itself 
is mostly OS independant and based on POSIX standards probably with RT 

Problem: I don't want to install Linux on my workstation just to be able to 
build Linux binaries.

Question: I know i can freely build NetBSD distribution under Linux, thanks to 
the flexible NetBSD build  framework. But can i build Linux under NetBSD ? 
Does someone have such experience, probably some hints or tips ?

Thanks for attention.
