Since I have just got ethernet working on my LCIII, I have decided to
resurrect my 3/50.

It has a 100M external, and runs currently NetBSD 1.0A (GENERIC#31) of aug
21 last year.

I would like to bring it up to -current, and share as much as possible of
/usr with the mac68k machine.

Clearly /usr/share can be common.

Presumably, large chunks of /usr can be shared, since the two ports are
binary compatible (right?).

I am also going to want to be able to compile kernels for the Sun3.
Presumably this compilation has to be hosted on the 3/50.

I understand how to set up union mounts and nfs mounts and so forth - but I
would like some guidance on how much I should try and share between the two

I also have another 3/50 (about 100 miles away ATM, but I should get it
back soon) which I will be running diskless...
