Seems to be so! With this patch the resulting dynamically (!) linked
perl(58) (*) can run the (pthread-ed) postgresql74 based

  (*) It's the one that is installed if you

    cd .../pkgsrc/lang/perl58/work.../perl-5.8.4
    make install

The finally installed and stripped perl binary from

  cd .../pkgsrc/lang/perl58
  make install

can _not_ run the indirectly pthread-ed p5-postgresql due to its
lost/stripped pthread dependency!

-> Seems to be a general problem where pthread is required by a base
package (postgres74-lib in my case, gd in yours) and the inbetween
perl (maybe others: e. g. python, php, apache?) does not
provide/require it.

-> A whole pkgsrc native pthread problem for netbsd?

BTW: Can anybody successfully compile perl58-thread under/for
