(With compat32_netbsd61 as a reference:)

MKCOMPAT's documentation is unclear.  It looks like it is for building
e.g. i386 versions of the current libraries on amd64.  As I understand
things, that doesn't address getting the i386 versions of things in
6.1 that have different shlib majors from -7, which should be
the same set of things that one needs to run amd64 binaries from 6.1 on
a 7.0 amd64 things (but built for i386).

emulators/compat_netbsd/Makefile.common doesn't include mips64.  Perhaps
that should be changed?
