This code hasn't changed since version 1.1. I believe both of these are
part of the POSIX threads API, as described in the single unix spec


If the NetBSD mutexes can be shared across processes, and yet doesn't
have these functions, then it's probably reasonable to add tests to the
build process that enable the library even in the absence of them.
