	I started from the NetBSD port to make the Linux port.
	It was almost there, apart (if I remember well) one problem
	in the interpreter and the wrong information to access to the
	stack pointer (wrong at least for ARM Linux). 

	I enabled the shared library code and it works fine (as good
	as the static version). jthread also works fine. But I think I
	still have problems with GCTest.

	Again, I can tell you about ARM Linux on NetWinder, so if
	you know that certain things should be the same on NetBSD
	feel free to ask.
