Chrooted NetBSD environment available for testing

I have a vaguely usable environment available for download at
http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~mjg59/debian-netbsd/debian-netbsd.tar.gz . It
should (just about) be possible to start compiling packages inside there
now - I think there's just about a minimal development environment.

Bugs: the dpkg suite produces packages of architecture netbsd-i386, but
believes that the system is i386-netbsdelf. This isn't too much of a
problem - just use --force-architecture for now. dpkg-architecture seems
vaguely unhappy for reasons I haven't worked out yet. Docs (and doc
packages) are almost entirely broken due to not having texinfo built
yet. Once we've got that far, rebuilding the packages shouldn't be too
much of a problem.

Todo: Stuff like init, a bootloader, that sort of thing, still need to be
done. The libc package needs to be split up. Various other libraries from
NetBSD need to be packaged. This shouldn't be too hard.

I'll stick the packages themselves somewhere shortly. I've just managed to
delete my gcc package source tree (whoops), but in the end I've got it
down to a single patch (which I still have) that can be thrown into the
debian/patches directory so ought to be able to recover that pretty
quickly. I haven't got dejagnu sorted, so testing was switched off for the
gcc package build. It seems to work, but no guarantees.
