NetBSD already has CDFs!  You just gotta find'em:


/foo/bar resolving to right architecture.


mkdir /arch
cd /arch
ln -s /foo/bar.m68k8k

cd /foo
ln -s /arch/ bar

Now, when you access /foo/bar, it resolves to /arch/  This is in
the root filesystem on each host.  Now, this resolves to /foo/bar.(arch).
A bit gross, and it pollutes the root filesystem, but for "plain" Unix,
it works.  Union mounts help a lot here.
