kfreebsd-amd64 base system ready


For those who want to play with it, there's a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD system for
amd64 now:


Its stage is very preliminar and only useful for developers.  Instructions:

  - Install FreeBSD 6.0 for amd64, and setup network.
  - Extract /boot/kernel from kfreebsd-image-6.0-1-amd64-generic, and use it to
  replace the stock kernel from FreeBSD.
  - Get base.tgz and extract it somewhere.
  - Mount /dev (devfs) and /proc (linprocfs).
  - chroot and run /native-install.
  - Get /etc/passwd and /etc/group from a sane Debian system and copy them over
    (/etc/shadow is NOT needed).
  - Done.  You should be able to install things via apt-get now.

This is due to Petr Salinger who did all the actual work of porting Glibc and
debugging it.  Thanks a lot!
