Many of us would *very* much like to be able to cross-build FreeBSD from both
Windows and Mac OS X, which would be highly desirable for embedded systems and
appliance shops. The first obstacle to making that work is that you can't
even check out our source code correctly on those platforms, so fixing that is
an important priority so that the remainder can be worked on.
