Hasso and all,

Just in case it interests somebody on the list, my project
cross-compiles Quagga using the NetBSD cross-compile framework and
and so-called "reachover" Makefiles.  We imported the sources in
The reachover makefiles are in
<http://svn.cuwireless.net:8080/svn/cuw/trunk/src/quagga/>.  This
may be of special interest if you want to cross-build routers with
NetBSD+zebra+ospfd/hslsd for CD-ROM or for CompactFlash card.
