Just a quick update.
I am able to correctly build and test ruby1.9 in my nptl enabled chroot.
Previously ruby1.9 was not building (tests were failing) on hppa
because glibc was based on linuxthreads.
The debian-glibc team has the latest patches for the hppa nptl
transition, and I am working with them to enable the transition ASAP.
