	On NetBSD/1.5.3 for m68k (Amiga in my case), pkgsrc/devel/pth
	1.4.1nb2 does not work (see also PR pkg/18236). The research
	done for pkg/18236 suggests there are two problems connected
	with this, probably a toolchain problem (described in a
	different PR) and a libc problem with setjmp/longjmp which seems
	similar to the one described in port-vax/11698; at least the
	error message is the same.

	The problem with *jmp occurred while running 'make test' with
	executables compiled without optimisation (-O0) in order to
	avoid the toolchain bug.

  $ cd work/pth-1.4.1
  $ ./test_std
  longjmp botch.
  Illegal instruction - core dumped

  $ gdb .libs/test_std test_std.core
  This GDB was configured as "m68k--netbsd"...
  Core was generated by `test_std'.
  Program terminated with signal 4, Illegal instruction.

	Similar output (#0 - #3) can be seen from core dumps of the
	other tests.
	- On a m68k machine with NetBSD 1.5.3 go to pkgsrc/devel/pth (1.4.1nb2)
	- 'DBG=-O0 make test'
	- observe the tests failing with 'longjmp botch   Illegal
	  instruction - core dumped'
	port-vax/11698 mentions m68k but as a positive example where
	_that_ bug does not happen :-/. I don't know whether the
	proposed fix for port-vax/11698 could be adapted to this PR.
