I'd got the NetBSD one to the point of having gcc, binutils and a libc,
but the laptop that I was working on has been stolen so work has come to
something of a halt at the moment. I've got some of the packages on
another machine, but I think the gcc ones are probably gone (I finished
them just before moving house and hadn't got round to getting back to them
before my laptop being taken).

You ought to be able to get 2.95 to compile using the patches that come
with the NetBSD source.
