Subject: Tkinter fails to work with Python22

NetBSD 1.6.2

using pkgsrc.tar.gz from 10 April

compiled with gcc-2.95.3

I installed /usr/pkgsrc/mail/fetchmailconf but when I run it, it fails
to start. It issues this warning:

notebook: {1} fetchmailconf
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/pkg/bin/fetchmailconf", line 9, in ?
from Tkinter import *
File "/usr/pkg/lib/python2.2/lib-tk/", line 35, in ?
import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: /usr/pkg/lib/ Undefined PLT symbol
"pthread_setspecific" (reloc type = 7, symnum = 1145

I see it refers to "pthread_setspecific". Does this mean that
python22-pth should be used instead of python22 ?


			Kind regards,
