        !            18: The Wine program is made of two components, Wine32 and Wine64, that respectively
        !            19: allow 32bit or 64bit Windows binaries to run on UNIX-like systems.

        !            21: Until now, Wine32 could not work on NetBSD-amd64, because the USER_LDT option
        !            22: was not available in the kernel.
        !            23: 
        !            24: This option was recently added, so Wine32 can now be ported to NetBSD-amd64.

        !            28:  * Make Wine32 work on amd64. As a first shot, it should be possible to compile
        !            29:    Wine32 on NetBSD-i386, and launch it on NetBSD-amd64 (which supports running
        !            30:    native 32bit binaries). At this stage, old Windows video games should work.
        !            31: 
        !            32:  * Make Wine32+Wine64 work on amd64. See the WineHQ wiki on how to achieve
        !            33:    this. At this stage, 64bit Windows binaries that use 32bit libraries should
        !            34:    work.
        !            35: 
        !            36:  * Package Wine32+Wine64 for pkgsrc.
