Ive been running a lot of packages with a pth package compiled
with '--enable-syscall-hard' on i386 for over a year now, even Zope runs
without problems after enabling threads in python.

So for the time being (until nathan's scheduler activations give NetBSD
native thread support) we should enable syscall-hard for the pth package.
