   The /emul/netbsd32 userland portion of netbsd32 does not matter but the
   kernel part matters for both. I think that the userland portion of
   /emul/netbsd32 should be just handled by symlinks to the compat directories.

how does it matter?  the new work i've done for 5.0 for sparc64/amd64
makes it not required at all, AFAIK.  i do not have a /emul/netbsd32
on any of my machines anymore, and everything works for me on both
amd64 and sparc64.

"options COMPAT_NEBBSD32" itself is entirely necessary, but afaict,
it doesn't need to ever look in /emul/netbsd32 anymore.
