I've been using lwp and coda (build against the cvs co) on both mac68k
and i386 for about a month now. That's the unthreaded version. rh
reports that, with pth on his system, it's trying to build a threaded
version (and choking). Both mit-pthreads and unproven-pthreads hide
better, so I didn't realize that would be a problem. I didn't even
know what pth was--maybe we do need a threads category.
