Implement an OpenBSD port

Can we have an OpenBSD port please? Pretty please with sugar on top? I'd love to be able to play on my main system instead of having to ssh to some linux box. I assure you there are many others like me, the non-vocal minority.

Is there some inherent issue with the code not compiling there or is it just genuine lack of interest/infrastructure/manpower? I can provide you with a build server if that helps, I can also do the builds and try to nail down the possible problems with the code, since OpenBSD is a very strict platform that enforces a lot of constraints, which in turn tends to expose some bugs.

In short, is this ever going to happen and what can we, the community, do to help make an OpenBSD port a reality?

I don't use BSD. Do the Net or FreeBSD ports not work on OpenBSD?

Of course they don't, there's no binary compatibility between the three. Btw given that OpenBSD has a significantly larger user base it seems odd to me to have a NetBSD port but not an OpenBSD port. Unless there's a technical difficulty involved? It should compile and run just fine, it's fully POSIX-compatible, and given that ADOM already supports other BSDs there shouldn't be much effort required to port it.

No special reason... we add new operating systems only "on demand". ;)

I guess you think about the "normal" version or do you want NotEye support too? :)

I don't really need the NotEye, thanks :)
OpenBSD is mainly used by diehard console users anyway, I guess ;D
Thank you so much!

So far so good (see attachment)... now I only need to integrate the VMs into the build infrastructure. ;)
