Including the pth buildlink3.mk file in the package Makefile is the
right way to do it. buildlink3 should be able to hide the presence of
GNU pth from packages that are using native threads on a platform that
supports it, e.g. NetBSD 2.0. If this is not happening, please file a
bug report so that we can fix this.
