The ultrix compat isn't fully supported in the common code yet.
The syscall numbering is different between vax & mips, and the
ecoff code must be #ifdef 0'd (vaxen don't want to know about ecoff).
I have uploaded the relevant files to ftp.luth.se:/pub/NetBSD/ultrix,
get them if you want to use compat-ultrix.
