A long time since I looked at this, but as no one else answered yet,
hints to look for, & maybe somebody'll correct it & post more useful info ;-)
& kernel options
options "IBCS2" /* SCO a.out emulation */
options SYSVSHM # SYSV-style shared memory /*for X11R6 */
options SYSVMSG # SYSV-style message queues
options SYSVSEM # SYSV-style semaphores
I recall when I last did cross OS work way back I needed a
raft of include files & libs & custom or special version of ar etc.
Which brings up questions of Copyright, depending what you'r doing
(I'm not asking, your business & decision, I don't want to know about SCO !).
The newer way might be to run SCO inside a virtual environment
BTW If you're doomed to run SCO, get hold of a SCO Skunkware CD,
issued by SCO, free) full of FSF & PD etc tools to make raw SCO
You should search this archive:
& probably susbscribe & ask there.
IMO you'll probably have better luck with FreeBSD than NetBSD for this,
(not will certainly, just probably at my guess, for this topic ;-)
