I installed transcode-0.6.12nb1 today under NetBSD 1.6.2.

Running it like:

 transcode -i frm-0000.mpeg -y mpeg,null -o e.mpeg
(which may be wrong syntax)

failed with:

[transcode] warning : Undefined symbol "sigwait"
(decoder.c) loading audio import module failed
[transcode] failed to init import modules
[transcode] critical: plug-in initialization failed

I think ktrace tells me that the audio import module is

rainier:/usr/src/tmp$ ldd /usr/pkg/lib/transcode/
         -lpthread.20 => /usr/pkg/lib/
         -lintl.0 => /usr/lib/

rainier:/usr/src/tmp$ nm -a /usr/pkg/lib/ | grep sigwait
000070a8 T __pthread_sigwait
0000daf0 T pth_sigwait
0000db18 T pth_sigwait_ev
000106e0 T sigwait

(What does nm's "T" means above?)
