 |    | hmm, what happens if you don't have /emul/netbsd32?  ie, just copy

 |    | /emul/netbsd32 is probably going to be going away as being used.

 | how does /emul/netbsd32 affect static binaries?
 
 The /emul/netbsd32 userland portion of netbsd32 does not matter but the
 kernel part matters for both. I think that the userland portion of
 /emul/netbsd32 should be just handled by symlinks to the compat directories.
