I sent mail to rh@ immediate after importing it and discussed.

There are three issue:

1. ftime(3) issue
  This library use `ftime(3)', but on *BSD, this function exist in libcompat,
  so tell libtool(*.la) and pkg-config(*.pc) files to link to libcompat.

2. gethostbyname_r issue
  This library use glibc like gethostbyname_r, so on other platforms that
  have imcompatible version or no such function, fail to link.

3. sched_* issue
  This library use sched_* functions, but at least NetBSD 3 
  those function always return `false', so this library
  will fail to intialize.

I aleady commit to pkgsrc-wip that fix those issue and update to 1.4.1.
But no plan to import into pkgsrc main tree yet.
