This looks like a problem with Racket's inference of the stack size.

In some BSD variants, enable pthread support makes the main thread have
a different size than the usual stack limit. Did you specifically
enable places, futures, or pthread when configuring? (I think they're
off by default for NetBSD, but I may be mistaken.) Does configuring so
that `-pthread' isn't used in the compiler command change the success
of the "deep.rktl" test?
