OK, since I am one of the few FreeBSD'ers trying to get patches into
GTk+/glib whenever new versions come out I'm obviously biased towards
FreeBSD's architecture since my knowledge ends with NetBSD being one of the
three BSD's. If a Bull Estrella (RISC or CISC machine) is sufficient enough
to install NetBSD on then I might get my own NetBSD box soon enough.

So if one or two developers could be bothered to look more deeply into
GTk+/glib and submit patches as well.

The same would go for automake / autoconf / libtool.
