Someone led me to believe it was, actually, still maintained. If it
isn't, let's kill it.
The LLVM guys were evaluating c++ libraries before deciding to roll
their own. A big reason STLport was rejected was that all work on trunk
had halted 4 years earlier. It's dead. The other reason I recall was
c++11 support wasn't even started.
Yes, it is broken:
=> Checking for missing run-time search paths in tcl-expat-1.1nb6
ERROR: lib/tcl/TclExpat-1.1/tclexpat.so: missing library: libtcl85.so
I did fix it, here and here:
So either the fix didn't apply to NetBSD or perhaps something else broke
it later on. In any case, a new fix is likely trivial. If I can get my
machines back on line this weekend, I might take a look at it again.

Right, with the various circumstances I think this is just going to be
broken. (Sigh.) It is broken on NetBSD as well as on dfly, btw.
I wouldn't fret. If the fix is reverted (as I suspect will happen),
NetBSD will be fine. It's "only" DragonFly users that will lose out.
