Thanks for the bug report, Riccardo. NetBSD 2.0 has/will have semaphore 
support as far as I can tell from the online docs.

So one option would be to special case all semaphore handling, and not 
doing it when no semaphores are available. The other option would be to 
investigate if classpath's gtk peers can run with jthreads somehow.
