Wow, amazing! Please keep it there. I am now playing with {Net,Free}BSD
versions of arm, and no time to play with it right now...

As far as NetBSD is concerned, the emulator 'gxemul' supports NetBSD
to be booted (with which I tested for kaffe-1.1.7) but unfortunately
the 'gdb' program in this environment causes illegal instruction. I
am now considering to purchase real board which can be used for NetBSD.
