There have been several threads discussing this, and the final
conclusion was that Debian would go with LinuxThreads, and all
programs providing libraries (static or shared) need to ensure that
they compile them with the gcc option -D_REENTRANT.

I believe that many of the libraries (libg++, lesstif, etc) have
already been modified to support this.
