I like the idea, could you please explain with a little bit more details
how the crossbuilding works on NetBSD?
Would it be possible to use NetBSD libc instead of newlib even on Linux?

However Keir is right about XEN_OS: the stubdom Makefile
shouldn't change it but should only set CONFIG_MiniOS instead.
