Indeed. My apologies for this - the source that I have is currently being
tarred up. I'm currently including the binaries in there since some of my
modifications were to the build-tree rather than the source, with the
consequence that if I do any sort of make clean some may get blown
away. I'll try to clean up these during the week.

I'll upload the tarred build trees to
http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~mjg59/debian-netbsd/source once they've finished
compressing. It's likely to take a while for them all to appear due to the
speed of my uplink.
