Carsten írta: "I think it's [h] + voiceless aspirated breathy voiced
bilabial nasal ingressive fricative. I assumed breathing in (reverse
airstream, into the lungs) is _< in X-Sampa. There's no "fricativized"
diacritic in IPA as it seems :-("

You could write [p\_n_h_t]. Since I don't know how you would represent
inhalation (except with stops), I'm skipping that part. But how can you have
an aspirated ingressive? :S

BTW: please folks, title your msg's with accurate subjects. People can miss
out on a topic they would be interested in, but the subject line disguises
it as something uninteresting to them. I think everyone will appreciate
