Chris Provenzano's pthreads implementation should run on several
NetBSD ports.  It can be found at
It's by no means perfect, but it's better than nothing.

The pthreads code in the NetBSD source tree is hopelessly outdated;

work is underway to replace it with a more highly-integrated version,
but i don't know what the status of that is.
