The author has special cases in the configure script for all
OS's he wants to support, and while there are freebsd* and openbsd*
cases, there is no netbsd* case -- you'll have to find out which variables
should be set in that case, add them to and run autoconf
(and perhaps friends) to regenerate configure (and's).
