Well, I've been thinking about this too, and if it will help matters,
I have a already-running-NetBSD MicroVax III+ (Vax 3900, btw) which is
doing not much.   64MB RAM, 700MB disk, TK50

I have downloaded the 1.2G source to it, but have not yet finished
compiling it.

If the surplus cycles of this CPU would be of use, I'll have no problem
making them available.
