I'm new to the *bsds, but my research into making a firewall/dmz/access
point and more sort of hardware has inevitably led to *bsd projects.
I've heard of the security of netbsd and of course that it runs on just
about everything, so my interest was peaked, but I haven't been able to
find a great deal of information that's been helpful. To sum it up, I'd
be interested in hearing about
-cross compiling and porting from x86 to other platforms
-how netbsd compares to other options for embedded systems in terms of
system size & requirements, performance and security, particularly as it
relates to network related equipment
