I've been working on this and am encountering problems I need guidance
on. GnuPG 1.9.93 depends on libassuan built with pth. GnuPG 1.9.93 and
pinentry also depend on pth. Currently, security/gnupg-devel and
security/pinentry build pth locally and link statically to the pth
library to avoid conflicts with native pthreads on NetBSD. I can
eliminate the static linking to pth and make libassuan, gnupg-devel and
pinentry dependant on pth, however, I noticed that having pth causes
problems with other packages (perl won't build) on NetBSD.
