Great! Now I need to dust off my PWS500au.
Thanks. :-)

Nitpick: The PWS500au is EV56 and EV56 has BWX. EV5 has no BWX.

You live in Paris France? I live in Germany. As this is all EU shipping
should not be too hard. So I am willing to donate a DEC3000-300X with a
set of different TC framebuffers to you if it helps. I may throw in an
AlphaStation 200 in too. (It is a 166 MHz EV4 machine.)

If remote debugging is enough: I have a remote debugging facility and I
can add those two machines to it. This remote debugging facility is used
by other NetBSD developers already. I may be able to connect a display to
at least one of those machines and a camera looking at the display.
