Well, I had a 120 disk that the source tree no longer fits on ... just a 
bit too big.  Add objects for 2 ports.

/dev/sd1f          696276   460634   200828    70%    /work/netbsd

Source + hp300, sun3, sparc objects.

Yah, but there are a couple of programs which don't quite work properly 
between the two - disklabel, for one (mac has a different MAXPARTITIONS), 
eeprom(8) and screenblank(1) (Sun-specific), and anything that uses 
libkvm (the sun3 and mac have much different modules for libkvm, though 
I'd like to see the Sun 3 kvm stuff merged with the other m68k, but it 
would require a coupld of trivial changes to the sun3 kernel)
