You can build everything using in /usr/src. This includes also
gmake which is built as a tool. Now to build the posix test suite on linux
targetting netbsd is more complicated because you have to use the NetBSD
toolchain so you need to add stuff to the Makefiles to do that. It is not
really useful, since you need NetBSD anyway to run the tests.
