I'm not yet convinced libpthread is necessary.
On my system, neither Xorg nor anything in /usr/pkg/lib/xorg/modules
or /usr/pkg/lib/dri is linked against libpthread, and AIGLX (i915)
works. I also havn't found any evidence in the xorg-server code
that multiple threads are used.

I've been running compiz with fvwm, worked well too. Only that
Xv video output conflicts. The "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" option
is necessary for i915 too.
If you have ideas for pkgsrc/wm/compiz, feel free to commit.
