Hey, no.  I'm not even sure I'd find time (and skills) to contribute.

I know, however, that there have been efforts in that direction by the
GNU/kFreeBSD folks.  There has also been work on a GNU/NetBSD port of
Debian (i.e., using NetBSD's libc) in the past.

I believe support for older hardware is an incentive for a GNU/(k)NetBSD
Debian.  It might attract other people precisely because of this.

Anyway, this is admittedly very prospective.
