I thought NetBSD 3.0 didn't suffer from this problem. dlopen.builtin.mk
thinks that the problem was fixed after NetBSD-2.99.10. If it's not,
then we should add NetBSD<=3.0 to the list in dlopen.builtin.mk of
platforms that require pthreads when using dlopen(). Can you test to
see if that makes apache + ap-perl on your system work correctly?
