        !            16: pkgsrc duplicates NetBSD efforts in maintaining X.org packages.
        !            17: pkgsrc X11, being able to cross-build, could replace base X11 distribution.
        !            18: 
        !            19: The latter decoupling should simplify maintainance of software;
        !            20: updating X11 and associated software becomes easier because of
        !            21: pkgsrc's shorter release cycle and more volatility.
        !            22: 
        !            23: Cross-buildable and cross-installable pkgsrc tools could also
        !            24: simplify maintainance of slower systems by utilising power of

        !            27: The goal of this project is to make it possible to bootstrap
        !            28: pkgsrc using available cross-build tools (e.g. NetBSD's).

        !            30: This project requires good understanding of cross-development,

        !            32: and familiarity with pkgsrc bootstrapping.
