An experimental release (source+binary) of SBCL for NetBSD is available
at <http://www.notcom.org/sbcl/>. It has not been extensively tested,
but it can compile itself. You will need to use a patched kernel as
documented on the page.
Please test it and send me comments/suggestions. Thanks.

Cool. I've added a link on <http://sbcl.sourceforge.net/>.

I've talked with Robert Swindells who's working on porting
CMUCL to NetBSD, and he has a different patch for delivering
fault address to user processes. This will probably be going
into -current shortly and with luck will be in NetBSD 1.6.1.
I've been doing some stuff with the port over the weekend and
haven't run into any issues. The trap handling code in NetBSD
is apparently in some flux right now, but I'll probably have
a generally cleaned up port that uses the new address passing
method done this week. I'll also test that I didn't break anything
for FreeBSD. I have no OpenBSD box to test on, unfortunately.
The confusion between the different .align formats in x86-assem.S is
somewhat annoying. I think it would be good if this could be changed
to use .p2align instead (though this is gas-specific).
