It is *UND* (undefined) by libpth and libpthread. I don't know much about
this. The dlysm(3) man page says: "These functions are not in a library.
They are included in every dynamically linked program automatically."

In my case, I added debugging to the problem program to print out the
dlerror after each dlsym.

rainier:~/tmp$ bbconf
dlerror() is Undefined symbol "sigwait"
dlerror() is Undefined symbol "_maker"
unable to create plugin from /usr/pkg/lib/bbconf/plugins/

ldd bbconf has:
         -lpthread.20 => /usr/pkg/lib/
