Hi Horst,

 You'll have to build these from source. Best to leave
overnight. Configuring the Xorg server is a bit of an
adventure, though there are a few NetBSD configs out there to
copy from.

 I'd love to see that running on PPC :) Last time I looked at
Emacs, there was quite a bit of build glue to get it going.
Too complicated for my patience at the time.

4 to run ;)

 Firefox doesn't built at the moment: it requires a
cut'n'paste of the Net/OpenBSD ppc asm glue in XPCOM.

 Now, doing an AIX binary emulation for FreeBSD is certainly a
large task :)
