You won't have any trouble, except for the occasional minor difference
between FreeBSD & NetBSD.  The hardest problem I face is the
difference in the default shell settings.  :-)

Doesn't work.

Anything NetBSD supports works on hpcarm.  That's what portability is
about.  :-)

Standard NetBSD USB support, check the main NetBSD docs for Bluetooth.
I don't own any Bluetooth support (or any USB kit, actually), so never
cared to check it out.

Dunno, sorry.

Packages cannot be cross-compiled.  I NFS mount /usr/pkgsrc and build
there, as the second article in that series you read says.  Packages
can take a long time to build, but palmtops are perfectly happy
working through the night.  :-)
