Hi, all
just created two packages for testing xine under NetBSD:
About xine, please see:

1. xine doesn't work for us in the meantime because our Xlib not yet
support pthreads. The outputs are:

This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.9.8
(c) 2000, 2001 by G. Bartsch and the xine project team.
Built with xine library 0.9.8 [Fri 08 Mar 2002 21:36:43]-[gcc version 2.95.3
+20010315 (release) (NetBSD nb1)]-[NetBSD 1.5ZA i386].
Found xine library version: 0.9.8 (0.9.8).

XInitThreads failed - looks like you don't have a thread-safe xlib.

Maybe nathanw_sa branch users have the chance to run it successfully. :)
(Of cause, you should recompile XFree to support pthreads.)

2. aaxine seems would work but I just get a black window without any picture.
Maybe someone could finish it. ;)
