OK. It's not straightforward, because it needs careful mangling of
system header files - but it can be done.
What I did:
2. /usr/include/signal.h -> "#if 0 / #endif" around the pthread_sigmask()
prototype and the macro definition
3. move away /usr/include/pthread*.h
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 14120 Sep 4 17:13 XXX_pthread.h
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 6885 Sep 4 17:13 XXX_pthread_dbg.h
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 5379 Sep 4 17:13 XXX_pthread_queue.h
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 7005 Nov 22 16:55 XXX_pthread_types.h
4. *then* compile and install pth, libmilter, milter-greylist
(installing pth before header mangling makes it pick up
#define pthread_sigmask __libc_thr_sigsetmask
from <signal.h>, which will cause unresolved symbols later on)
now ldd confirms that milter-greylist is using pkg pth only - but alas:
it still crashes on me.
Will try 4.0-recent with native threads next.
