                     16: The Wine program is made of two components, Wine32 and Wine64, that respectively
                     17: allow 32bit or 64bit Windows binaries to run on UNIX-like systems.
                     18: 
                     19: Until now, Wine32 could not work on NetBSD-amd64, because the USER_LDT option
                     20: was not available in the kernel.
                     21: 
                     22: This option was recently added, so Wine32 can now be ported to NetBSD-amd64.

                     24: Milestones:
                     25: 
1.5       maxv       26:  * Test a static Wine32 on amd64. That is, compile Wine32 statically on
                     27:    NetBSD-i386, and launch it on NetBSD-amd64 (which supports running native
                     28:    32bit binaries). See if it works, and if not, apply the necessary fixes.
                     29:    At this stage, old Windows video games should work.
                     30:  * Make a dynamic Wine32 work on amd64. Compile Wine32 on NetBSD-i386 in
                     31:    a non-static way, and launch it on NetBSD-amd64.
1.1       maxv       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:  * Package Wine32+Wine64 for pkgsrc.
1.5       maxv       36: 
                     37: Note that reaching the first step is already good.
