Thanks. But I didn't intend to change the "netbsd*-gnu" rule. That one
corresponds to the system based on NetBSD's kernel and libc (as opposed to
knetbsd*-gnu which is NetBSD's kernel with Glibc).

Richard said it should also be called "GNU/KNetBSD" and its triplet changed to
knetbsd*-gnunolibc (the triplet, however, was not changed since that would
break things and we'd have to discuss it with the netbsd*-gnu people first)

In any case, the following:

Would call it "NetBSD" which is incorrect, so we need to find a better
