System: NetBSD armv7 9.0_STABLE NetBSD 9.0_STABLE (GENERIC) #0: Tue Jun 30 18:49:17 UTC 2020 evbarm
Architecture: earmv7hf
Machine: evbarm
	On NetBSD/evbarm (at least earmv7hf)
	Probably the easiest way to reproduce it is by manually running
	tests/lib/libexecinfo/t_backtrace, e.g.:

	% /usr/tests/lib/libexecinfo/t_backtrace backtrace_fmt_basic
	t_backtrace: WARNING: Running test cases without atf-run(1) is unsupported
	t_backtrace: WARNING: No isolation nor timeout control is being applied; you may get unexpected failures; see atf-test-case(4)

 Log Message:
 tor: disable backtrace(3) support on netbsd-9 evbarm

 backtrace(3) does not work on netbsd-9 ending up in a SIGSEGV and tor
 process hanging forever (a simple way to reproduce without configuring
 tor is just invoking tor via `tor --version').

 Workaround for PR port-evbarm/55669.
