Basicaly yes.  The toolchain also needs some (minor) work.  Then there's the
task of bootstrapping debian, and packaging the kernel itself and related

May I ask, do you have some particular kernel in mind?

I'm not sure.  Originaly, this list was a generic one for various *BSD porting

Then glibc-bsd-devel was created for discussion of Glibc-based GNU/k*BSD ports,
out of which only GNU/kFreeBSD gained significant momentum.

Then the non-Glibc ports vanished and debian-bsd list became unused.  Later
Aurelien set this list for logs of commits, uploads, etc.
