I could debug this further today and noticed that the problem had to do
with __thread tls usage, which I'm unsure NetBSD even supports.  8.12.0
configure script defaulted to --with-__thread=no, when 9.x to
--with-__thread=auto, and autotools gcc test appear to succeed so
WITH___THREAD was being defined changing the code path from standard
pthread_key_t to __thread.

So I confirm that built on netbsd-5 with --enable-threads
--with-__thread=no ECL no longer gets stuck in ecl_min.  I submitted
diffs to the related NetBSD PR so that pkgsrc will use this configure
option when built on NetBSD in the future if the thread option is
enabled (see
