   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.
   23: 
   24: Milestones:
   25: 
   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.
   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.
   36: 
   37: Note that reaching the first step is already good.
