Glibc with NPTL


I have successfully installed the AMD64 port on my very new 64-bit system. It works great and runs smooth.

I really want to use NPTL and I don't think I use it right now. I tried a small JAVA program that generated a lot of threads and the all showed up as separate process, like with linuxthhreads ( used Blackdowns port of Suns JVM for AMD64). I tried the same method on a 32 bit system (debian sarge) and then the threads runs in one process like it should. Is there any simpler way to see if Glibc is NPTL enableed?

Anyway how do I do to enable NPTL. I downloaded the glibc source package and made sure that “GLIBC_PASSES += nptl” was included in debian/sysdeps/amd64.mk but it diden't seem to work.

What am I doning wrong, is there anyone that already have glibc packages that are NPTL enabled?
