Maybe, this seems like another problem...

Maybe you have pthread library in your library path, but there is no
pthread.h in your include path.
I don't know mozilla works with your pthread library.
But I known mozilla does not work with pth (at least debug version of
mozilla, assertion will fail).
Current version of mozilla for NetBSD use classical thread in
NSPR(Netscape Portable Runtime).
Another unix platform have there own thread mechanisim(pthread, sun
thread, ...)
Classical thread is only used for MacOS (I think. is this correct?)
and now for NetBSD.
Almost all the codes will not be hardly depended on platform but thread.
Nobody at working on NetBSD. , thus it's very hard to track
their work and debug their new code on NetBSD if it doesn't work.
I think using well tested pthread is better way.
Are there any plans to include pthread to NetBSD?
