after upgrading to NetBSD/i386 3.0 (from 2.0) and recompiling all
packages (from current pkgsrc as of about a week ago), apache exits
with abort trap on startup when loading mod_perl. [It worked under
2.0, but I don't know how recent the packages were.]
The abort happens in libc's fgetc, somewhere in the file locking
code; recompiling apache with CFLAGS+=-pthread fixes the problem. It
looks like the old problem of a non-threaded executable (apache)
loading a threaded library (perl is built with threads support).
Has this been / should this be fixed in libc?
Should I add a threads option to www/apache, which adds -pthread to
CFLAGS (at least on NetBSD)?
