| Here's perl built on 4.0 and running in a 4.0 chroot with -current kernel,
| and with the drop-in compat libpthread I mentioned earlier:

I have not tried that [with the drop-in compat libpthread], but without it
it does not work... Ideally one could construct a libpthread that would
work with both SA and non SA threads [by checking on the availability of
the sa syscalls or even the kernel version] so that people can switch
between current and 4.0 kernels. Is that possible, and is that a better
alternative than revivesa?
