What I'm actually doing now is running NetBSD 1.3.3 with the 
NetBSD-current coda/ sources.  The patch I made to do this lets 
them work under 1.3.3, and also (I think, but I haven't tried) 
lets them work under FreeBSD 2.2.[68].  (The patch basically 
adds back to the NetBSD-current coda/ sources the same __NetBSD__ 
and __FreeBSD__ preprocessor #ifs, etc., that the cfs/ sources have.)
