I'm stuck at the same place with my latest crosscompiler, cygwin -
vax-netbsd. It will build object files that are correct, but the linker
claims that they aren't vax a.out objects...

I seem to remember some hack i had to make when i built my solaris-sparc -
netbsd-vax crosscompiler. But unfortunately i have wiped the
sources... :-( 

I think it was a bug in the bfd library though, which built correctly but
got the byte order in the header of the files wrong. I'm not sure though,
it's been quite a while since i tinkered with this stuff.
