	/usr/bin/mklocale is used directly in the build process.  Instead,
	a MKLOCALE make variable should be defined in, which
	allows cross-compiling scripts (which may be running on non-NetBSD
	systems) to override MKLOCALE to the appropriate host tool.

	Attempt to cross-compile the NetBSD source tree using any one
	of N methods.

	Not provided ... should be pretty obvious.
