If the answer is "yes" to the first question, then we should request that ia64-netbsd be allowed to live on.  If the answer is "no", then we should either step up and fix it or we should let it die.  If we let it die, then we have to consider our options for the ia64 port.

If we want to keep it up, it could be one of the latest chances.
