Well, since we're just now getting UVM support for NetBSD/vax we should
probably set on it a little while to sort out any port dependant quirks
that are still hiding. Recompiling all of NetBSD's utils can be a
daunting task as well, at least on the first pass. I did it last summer
(northern hemisphere summer) when the kernel was still not entirely stable
on the M30 and M38. I think it took me about two weeks to compile
everything. Of course I was still very new to NetBSD at that time, and I
also didn't have the added speed that comes with support of primary and

It's been working for a long while. There seems to be an unwritten rule
of sorts that the platform isn't officially supported unless it's got disk
drive support. Which is understandable given that it's a non-trivial task
to netboot the systems for most people. Then again, it does take a
certain special breed of individual to want to run their own VAX.
