WARNING - libpthread changes
I committed the change which "syncs" our threading libraries. As a result
a lot of more features are available now in libpthread - barriers,
spinlocks and some more:
Note, that all this is really functional if you use libthread_xu only,
libc_r has only stubs for these which always retun a failure. Please make
sure that /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 is a symlink to libthread_xu.so in
your system. It's default and using libc_r isn't something you should do
in production system anyway. libc_r is there for testing purposes only.
I can also guarantee that it introduces at least some problems with
building pkgsrc packages. There shouldn't be any problem running packages
built before that change though.
I'm in vacation next four weeks, so I'm not able to work on this much, but
I hope to get most of pkgsrc in shape again (to fix failures in essential
packages at least) during this week.
