I just submitted initial bits for a NetBSD package for OTP-R8-0. Not
that people haven't been using Erlang on NetBSD up to now. This is
just to make it easier to get Erlang going on any of the 45 or so
architectures supported by NetBSD - at least those big enough to run
the kit.

One reason for wanting to run it on NetBSD is the platform's
aggressive support of IPv6. Unfortunately, although there appears to
be code in R8 to deal with IPv6, initial attempts to get two nodes
talking over IPv6 with -proto_dist inet6_tcp resulted in all pangs and
no pings. :-( Hope to have time to look into this soon...
