When playing falcons-eye with esd audio enabled and linux_midi_player
option set for timidity in esd mode, the graphics hang. This is caused by a missing include of pthread.h in the SDL esd audio, allowing a threaded write to be used. Since this was added by NetBSD patches for the other audio modes, I thought it should be added
for esd as well. This makes the audio work for me, and with a patch I submitted to falcons-eye, I am able to play both background, and sound effects at the same time (and even desktop audio).
As described above
Add following patch similar to 
pkgsrc/devel/SDL/patches/patch-al on file in directory
