libc6 has been recompiled using 'nptl' instead of 'linuxthreads'
for the amd64/gcc-3.4 (not as an extra library stored in '/lib/tls'
but directly for the main library in '/lib').
This should hopefully solve the thread problems.
'linuxthreads' is needed for kernel 2.4 compatibility only and the
amd64 port does not support 2.4 kernels anyway.
