Yes, as my daughter would say "Way coooool..."

Same problem here with pthreads on NetBSD on my IPX. I installed the 
ports collection, found mit-pthreads and tried to 'make' it only to find 
that there is some problem with pthreads on SPARC. Bummer.

Ports collection might get pthreads working on a i386 platform though.

Tried to get x2x to compile on SPARC Sol9 only to have imake put in a 
flag (like -Xc or something) that made the compile fail... Dunno. Bummer 
there, too.
