OK, this turned out to be pretty simple. Just needed a slightly newer
version of the Darwin patches we already had.

This turned out to be less simple. I need to think about it some more.

I have patches to bzip2, libiconv, gettext-lib, glib2, libgnome,
libgnomeui, libgtop2, pango, Xft2, libgnomeprint, libgnomeprintui,
gnome-vfs2, gnome2-control-center, and gtk2, but they're all pretty
small. What is the right way to deal with them? File PRs? Mail to
tech-pkg/packages/ individual maintainers? Just commit?

And then, new packages for gal, gtkhtml, and evolution, but I have no
idea if they work on NetBSD 1.6 with pth or not...
