Dear MIMIDefang Users:

Has anyone built MIMEDefang on a NetBSD system?  I've tried on 
NetBSD/alpha 1.5.2 using the unproven-pthreads-0.17nb2 package, but 
failed.  For reference, I'll append the output of ./configure and 
make to this messsage.

Perhaps another portable threads package like GNU pth will help?
