A VAX is a VAX (well for the most part).  The binaries should run on any
of the VAXen.  Maybe not the MicroVAX I, but then NetBSD doesn't (or won't
ever) run on that one -- so it doesn't matter.

Also, it's no big deal really.  I'm sure lots of others who have been
keeping up with the incremental changes from 1.2C to 1.2G didn't
experience nearly as many headaches as I did... at least not all at once.


For the fancy free and diskless workstation hordes, it should just be a
matter of untarring the binaries and slapping in their kernel of choice.
The Bertram flavored 1.2G kernel should work fine for VS2000 and VS3100

Still before sharing my binaries, I first want to recompile 1.2G-current
under my 1.2G-current(-1 week) build.  I can also use this recompile time
to figure out how to cleanly package my installed system like the snapshot
binaries are.  Anyone know if their is something like a `make snapshot'?
