Probably my fault.  I submitted the VAX port of PostgreSQL, and then
NetBSD stopped working on my KA650.  After a _lot_ of attempts, I gave
up, and it's now running Reno.  I think the main problem is, that
you're trying to compile the Sparc code instead of the VAX code,
because I made the mistake of using "vax" instead of "__vax__" in
ifdefs and such.  It was still legal back then.  :-)

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.
