Not sure about this, this is my first effort at porting to another arch.
My idea was to build the base ports on a distro, pkgadd them in a
chroot, and in that chroot run the make bootstrap. Otherwise you'd have
everything compiled against libraries from the host distribution...

Yep, forgot about them :(

Here's the list of ports from base which don't compile with me:

I don't have time to look at them this weekend un fortunately. For lilo,
Marcus sent in a mail containing a patch, but it's a big patch,
untested, and looks dirty IMHO, although i'm not that experienced in C.

lsantil says db compiles without the C++ API, but i don't think that's
acceptable unfortunately...
