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.
