Trying to shape my SSH-based transfers using trickle on NetBSD 5.0 
(pkgsrc-2009Q4), I ran into the following problem:

$ trickle -d 30 -u 30 scp -r [...]
trickle: Could not reach trickled, working independently: No such file or 
Segmentation fault
$ gdb scp scp.core
Core was generated by `scp'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0  0x00007f7ffdc02085 in __socket30 ()
   from /usr/pkg/lib/trickle/
(gdb) frame 10000
#10000 0x00007f7ffdc0208b in __socket30 ()
   from /usr/pkg/lib/trickle/ get the idea.

As it seems, NetBSD's libc socket() function is a wrapper, actually reaching 
the syscall by calling __socket30(). This tricks trickle into an infinite, 
recursive loop, eventually crashing upon the first call to socket().

Try to use trickle on NetBSD, it crashes.
Change net/trickle/patches/patch-aa to the following:
