Ooooh, spiffy.  I guess this means I have a bit more motivation then.
More on this later.

Yeah, for coreboot itself there are just a few lines that need patching
to build on NetBSD/i386

I haven't pushed very hard for getting this fixed, as I figured
I was one of those for-just-one-user cases.  That and it's easy
enough to patch.

I have a boot(8)-based payload that I've been working on occasionally,
It's in an ugly-ish, somewhat hard-coded, but none-the-less working
state.  Also, it's an easy-ish route to loading NetBSD/amd64's ELF64
