You can cross-build on almost any POSIX-like system (Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, etc.). It works great, I do it all the time. It's possible to cross-build not only kernel but whole OS. Building a new kernel is as easy as grabbing the source, then:
./ -m amiga tools
./ -m amiga kernel=GENERIC
And if you want to build everything specify "release" instead of kernel parameter. This process is explained in the documentation.

Does "kldload" not work on NetBSD (eg: kldload xi)?
No, we have something similar on other platforms, but on m68k only statically compiled kernels are supported (no modules).
