The Xen 2.0 build of NetBSD 2.0 had a problem on my system.

netbsd-2.0-xenU/nbconfig-xen uses uname -i to figure out the 
directory where the netbsd tools are keep which is always

Here is the output from uname -a

Linux bridge 2.6.9-xen0 #2 Mon Nov 29 12:05:22 CST 2004 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) MP 
Processor 1600+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

uname -i returns

The solution is to set HARCH="i386" in the environment
before running the build.   This could be set in the Makefile or better
change  nbconfig-xen  to not set HARCH using uname unless the tools tarball
has support for multiple toolchains.

Here is  the build failure.
