	Different m68k ports are binary compatible with the exception of
	programs using libkvm (both statically & dynamically linked).
	At least thats true between the sun3 & other m68k ports.. is
	there any reason the sun3 is special? (lib/libkvm/kvm_sun3.c?)

	That means you should be able to share all of /usr _apart from_
	/usr/lib/libkvm*... in fact the only specific files should be


	It would be _really_ nice if you could share the entire userland
	between all the m68k implementations.... :)

	How much extra overhead would it be to rework libkvm to determine
	the 'kernel arch at runtime & DTRT...?
