I can't seem to get MySQL 4.1.7 to work on m68k machines. I keep getting:

mysqld: Couldn't allocate stack for idle thread!: Cannot allocate memory

even on a system with 128 megs of memory when the calling shell is 

On a sparc64 machine, MySQL-4.0.whatever (latest) actually crashes the 
machine when it exits - it does it pretty reliably.

On another m68k Amiga machine, MySQL 4.0.whatever (latest) may have caused 
a kernel panic, since the panic happened when MySQL was quit. It wasn't my 
machine, so I didn't get to do a backtrace.

All of these systems are NetBSD 2.0 systems.

Anyone have any ideas?
