It does not work, and there seem to be multiple issues.  Could you build
(and fix if necessary) on netbsd-8?

(So far I have no reports that mongodb builds, except for you, who I
understand to be building on netbsd-current.   Let me know if I have
that wrong).

Post branch, it would be good to have things work with 3.x.  Obviously
we aren't going to drop 2.7 any time soon, but things with lots of
dependencies seem likely to be particularly troubled.
