I once started to look at this ... but haven't done any significant progress
apart from preparing the configure script to handle netbsd and put an empty
skeleton file for all functions to be implemented.

Iirc, most of the functions are trivial to implement, except for a few that
require more intimate knowledge of the netbsd usb implementation. Especially
for the isochronous part that was not present in libusb-0.1.

I can forward my changes to anyone interested (but again, there is nothing more
than a 10 minutes hacking session, so starting from scratch is also an option
