The main purpose of my project here is to write a kernel modesetting
driver. Apparently lots of FSF fanatics use Yeelongs entirely from the
terminal, so the potential for faster console scrolling speed is
somewhat appealing to them. ;)

I tried again last week to make n32 stages, but have had a terrible
time with catalyst.

The main problem I run into is that I can't get catalyst to
acknowledge any package.keywords files (which as I understand might be
by design), so I'm unable to put together a stage from the versions
I'd like to stabilize. Are your recent o32 stages straight-up ~mips?
Can you post your spec files somewhere?
