I’ve contacted them about dropping Amiga support, offering to try and get something up and running for them. It’ll mean the 4000 gets put to good use, and once I have a stable build setup I can try to recreate it using the 68k AROS kickstart and runtime in UAE so they can have an automated checkout->build->submit process.
Hopefully they’ll get back to me. Anyone want to take on any of the other OSes?
OK they’re just NOW dropping Amiga and BeOS support as well as K&R specific C features!
Also, because we’re talking about Nethack - this is pretty much the sum total of my nethack experience:
You faint from hunger! You die… Your little white dog eats you!
And OS/2 support. If I had a working OS/2 VM currently I’d probably volunteer to support it. I’m reasonably certain I played it back when I ran OS/2…

The first time I ever installed Linux was MkLinux (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MkLinux) on one of the first generation PowerPC macs, because that was only way I could get Nethack with graphics at the time. I randomly answered the build questions asked by the configuration script based on this thing I read on the Internet about how Linux was supposedly a mixture of SysV and BSD.
Still astonished I got it up and running—but I got to play nethack with graphics!
