Any objection to commit this? I've run this more than week with vlc,
arora and some local development pieces and haven't noticed any
regression compared to 4.4 either. Only vlc segfaults for me at exit
here on DragonFly, but this is what it's done for ages for me. But in
general 4.5 is much more mature than 4.4, especially webkit.

I've added two trivial patches to the package - one to fix a test ==
issue and another to restore a lost snippet to include pthread.h before
