I packaged the FreeBSD kernel. It wasn't too bad except that I had to use the
FreeBSD gcc and binutils, because it wouldn't build with gcc 3.0. So I have
a box that boots with everything in a package, including libraries and kernel.

I think NetBSD should be easier, since it's more supportive of cross compiling,
and probably less sensitive to the gcc version.
