yes it works (sort of) though I have a few other things I recommend:
--enable-addressing=direct \ <-- disable the need for root
--enable-standalone-gui \ <-- this will allow for one to wrap the emulator with a script so that we can have for an example, boot chimes.
here is the updated PKGBUILD:

Been a long time since I touched this program at all. Does it still work?

It might be possible to build sheep_net, yes (assuming it's still compatible with current kernels), but I would much prefer a mechanism that doesn't require having to load custom drivers – i.e. attaching to standard tap or macvtap interfaces, either directly or via vde2. (And it looks like ether_unix.cpp supports both methods.)

wouldn't it be possible to run make -j1 in macemu/SheepShaver/src/Unix/Linux/NetDriver then install sheep_net.ko into /lib/modules/SheepShaver and thus build a working sheep_net driver?
