for i386/NetBSD-1.0A (I imagine that this is same for other architectures) i 
needed to change libs/GetFdwidth to return

  return sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX) > FD_SETSIZE ? FD_SETSIZE : sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX) ;

otherwise fvwm ended up looping around select and hogged all cpu, this
was for version 1.24r

nntplink had similar problem.
