Ok, what was happening, was that because I'm working with a variety of OS's
and implementations of 'libc', I had coppied the file 'pthread.h' from 
package in to the /tmp directory for some examination/review.

During the build of the NetBSD world, '' uses /tmp to compile 
a 'c' file,
which in the case of the 'lib/libpthread' library code, included a file 
named 'pthread.h',
which happened to match the GNU GLIBC file in /tmp. Hence the NetBSD gcc
was draging in the wrong file, and emitting a number of errors such as 
'features.h' not
found, etc. and '' was not correctly creating the 'assym.h' 
file required
for compiling the code modules for 'libpthread'...
