 Can you try a `make cleandir` instead of a `make clean`?  It could be that
 there were some files left over from make depend.  When I run a build, it
 compiles src/dist/bind/lib/isc/nothreads/condition.c at this point, not the
 one from the pthreads directory.

 There is a description of the problem at the top of the "NetBSD/sparc64
 Projects" page at:
    * Threaded  programs  crash:  there  is  an  annoying  bug, probably
      somewhere  related  to trap handling or register saving/restoring,
      that  causes register on return from syscall() to be restored from
      the  wrong  storage - resulting in all local registers being zero.
      This  can  be  observed for example by running firefox: it crashes
      inside  libpthread,  when  dereferencing a pointer stored in (say)
      %l6,  supposed  to  point  to  the  current  thread, but after the
      syscall being NULL.
 However, the problem isn't obvious.  If you fancy looking at it, a post to
 the port-sparc or port-sparc64 lists should get you some more pointers on
 how to go about debugging it.
