We are sadly stuck building Linux kernels at this stage :-)

One thing that has frequently occurred to me is that it might
be nice to use NetBSD pkgsrc as the basis for C stub compilation
and interfacing with OS libraries, but I've never investigated
in depth.  The main issue with this (as I understand it) is that
pkgsrc prefers to own the compilation of all libraries and not
pass through to preinstalled OS versions.  Still, since Rump
has been upstreamed to NetBSD the situation for the base
build can only be getting better with respect to unikernel
