Interesting - would love to hear more about this setup if you can
share (how it's used/configured/hardware/application etc)!

I have not heard many stories of HPC/parallel compute on DF
so it would be interesting to hear some news -

Also - last I tried - on pkgsrc, openmpi failed to build
however mpich2 did build - so, any patches to fix that build
would probably be welcome - if you do have, submit to
netbsd's bugtracker & let us know here.
