I updated a few NBSD boxes from 1.6.2 to 3.0rc5 on the
w'end, and was pleasantly suprised to see that my pkgsrc apps
just work.  Nice ...

But, I'm concerned a little - 1.6 had to use the pkgsrc pkg "pth"
for threads for a number of packages, and 2.0+ all have pthreads
as core OS stuff.

I guess I can go ldd'ing around my binaries to see what they're
linking against, but is it a good idea to recompile all the
apps so they link against the OS thread libraries rather than
the pkgsrc ones?
