Description

There is missing space between "the" and "sigprocmask(2)" here in the thr_sigsetmask(3c) man page:

     Calling thesigprocmask(2) function will be the  same  as  if
     thr_sigsetmask() or pthread_sigmask() has been called. POSIX
     leaves the semantics of the call to sigprocmask(2)  unspeci-
     fied  in  a  multi-threaded  process,  so programs that care
     about POSIX portability should not depend on this semantic.

Where marked below, "set" is bold, but it should be italic:

     If the value of the argument set is not  NULL, set points to
                                                    ^^^
     a  set of signals that can modify the currently blocked set.
     If the value of set is NULL, the value of how is  insignifi-
     cant  and  the  thread's  signal  mask  is unmodified; thus,
     thr_sigsetmask() can be used to inquire about the  currently
     blocked signals.

...

     SIG_SETMASK
                    set corresponds to the new signal  mask.  The
                    current signal mask is replaced by set.
                                                       ^^^
