I've just run the ipython-0.12 selftest on a recent netbsd-6
snapshot, with python27 before and after my last change,
and didn't see problems.

While this is not exhaustive, it suggests that netbsd-6's
semaphores are OK, and also that the pkgsrc patch, while
unnecessary there, doesn't hurt.
(As a side note, Python on FreeBSD doesn't use the system's
semaphores either but the Python internal replacement.)

best regards
