Let's not be hasty.  A debian-compat package for NetBSD could be
very useful as a transition aid.  If the package-building tools
built for GNU/Linux can be run on top of a binary debian-compat 
library, then the project can concentrate on porting and packaging 
the base packages, first, and leave "optional" stuff for later.
