thanks all for the many replies - sure, the one-line version is a lot=20

Yep, that's described in the "cross building NetBSD" howto.

Perhaps a link in the "Kernel FAQ" or a short note there'd be good since=20
"Kernel FAQ" is the item one'd look for kernel compilation issues first,=20
perhaps not cross-building (at least not me, and I don't think I'm alone).

So one sentence "Refer to <url> for cross-compiling the kernel" in FAQ=20
