I have no plans to add NetBSD support, but you're welcome to.  I'd
quite like to see a generic config target that supports all OS with no
specific options, then it can be useful for a broader range of
platforms without having to add all of them individually.

I know tm@ got it working on FreeBSD:

so you may want to co-ordinate.

There's still some bits in the pkgbuild repository that are leftovers
from the private repository we use internally that it is exported
from, so hopefully the more people use it the more we can improve it
for general purpose.
