I've been trying to run NetBSD 8.1 on a MicroVAX3900 in SIMH and while the
base OS works fine, trying to build stuff from pkgsrc was an exercise in
frustration as gcc (the version NetBSD ships with) kept blowing up with
internal compiler errors. Things like Perl, Python, etc were reliably
impossible to build.
