New submission from Piotr Meyer <aniou at smutek.pl>:

Multiprocessing module needs some patches to succesfully builing

(upcoming release).

1. we need working socket module (Modules/socketmodule.c)

2. mremap under NetBSD has different semantics:

3. finally, we need settings for netbsd in setup.py:

After patching and building:

1 test OK.
