meh... too hard... just use a buildroot (or anything else - lilo is mostly
bin86 code, if not entirely static anyway)...
It's not too hard to add arches, it's mostly hard to do the few packages that
are annoying... lilo, for example.
Tomorrow (I'll go to sleep soon - if motion detecting on the sixaxis doesn't
kill me first :D) I'll work on the release...
...btw, so far, 386 has given me troubles every time... back in the 0.20 days,
it actually killed my host system slowly to chroot into the system! This
time, I'm having a bit of trouble - I've been too lazy to try much, tho.
