4.0 still uses SA threads and AFAIK SA threads never worked well on
sparc64. The situation improved a lot when -current switched to a new
threading model a while back. E.g. firefox was unusable on sparc64 with
SA threads but runs quit nice on -current with the new non-SA threads.
So, if you want / need to use a threaded application you have to switch
either to -current on sparc64 or to an other machine architecture if you
want / need to stay at 4.0. :-(
one other option is to try with the gnu pth library or some
other fully-userspace pthread library.
