There are three uses of pthread-stublib in pkgsrc today. graphics/MesaLib/ has:

.if !empty(MACHINE_PLATFORM:MNetBSD-[12].*)
.include "../../devel/pthread-stublib/"

This is probably an oversight, since no such include is in the Makefile.

In graphics/MesaLib7, it has the same. For non-NetBSD platforms, it uses

print/poppler-utils/Makefile has:

.if !empty(MACHINE_PLATFORM:MNetBSD-[12].*)
.include "../../devel/pthread-stublib/"
PTHREAD_STUBLIB=        # provided by libc

So there are in fact *no* uses of pthread-stublib on platforms other than
NetBSD 1 and 2 in pkgsrc. Hence, I reiterate my request to remove it.
