Build it and they will come.  You could make arguments about the relative
merits of the GNU C library vs. the BSD C library, but to all but the most
particular, it doesn't matter very much.  I for one would be delighted to
have the debian package infrastructure with, say, a NetBSD kernel.
[Especially if I could have it on a VAX.]

I suspect, if it is presented to them correctly (i.e., functioning), many
of the people in the BSD camp would gladly abandon their "pure"
distributions to get apt and all it implies.
