There is another implementation of portable thread library made by a
Japanese.   It's the output of the creator's master thesis several
years ago, and it's still maintained by him.  I've once seen the
demo, and got pretty impressed.

It runs on NetBSD/i386, SunOS 4.1/sparc, HP-UX/parisc, and NEWS-OS4
(R4000 4.3BSD derivative once made by SONY).

It might be valuable for you to take and look at his codes.
