Dear NetBSD/alpha:

Is NetBSD support for threads on the horizon?  I've been prompted to 
ask by my experience attempting to install MIMEDefang (which requires 
pthreads) in conjunction with sendmail.

I used the unproven-pthreads-0.17nb2 package which helped a bit, but 
not enough--quite possibly due to my lack of understanding.  Is 
another package such as GNU pth a near complete solution to the lack 
of kernel support for threads, or will true NetBSD support have some 
advantages when it arrives?
