I am trying to install databases/openldap under NetBSD 1.5.3.

rainier:/usr/local/pkgsrc/databases/openldap$ ident Makefile
     $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.46 2002/08/25 18:38:23 jlam Exp $

It starts with:

=> Checksum OK for openldap-2.0.25.tgz.
===> Extracting for openldap-2.0.25
===> Required installed package pth>=1.4.1nb2: pth-1.4.1nb2 found
===> Required installed package openssl>=0.9.6g: openssl-0.9.6g found
===> Required installed package pth>=1.4.0: pth-1.4.1nb2 found

Checks for pth twice.

And ends with:

checking for _beginthread... no
checking for pthread.h... no
checking for mach/cthreads.h... no
checking for cthreads.h... no
checking for pth.h... no
checking for thread.h... no
checking for synch.h... no
checking for lwp/lwp.h... no
configure: error: no suitable thread support
*** Error code 1

I do have pth-1.4.1nb2 installed and
"pkg_info -L pth | fgrep / | xargs ls -l" shows that files are there.

Can anyone share any suggestions?

(My goal is to install kontour which is in koffice, which apparently needs
