NetBSD running on G5

Hurrah! NetBSD on the G5 gives us a potentially useful option for G5 servers when Darwin/BSD is inevitably phased out for the'd be interesting if COMPAT_DARWIN comes along to the point where NetBSD can actually run WindowServer too.

I actually had a FreeBSD 7.0-SNAP up on my G4 tower a few months ago, hoping to help out with the port, but the kernel was so unstable that I couldn't get anything done at all :(. And I'm not as much of a kernel hacker as auserland hacker...
