Ah. No problem. I thought it somewhat suspicious that it was
"oldmitpthread", rather than just pthread or the like.
Mind if I ask what LinuxThreads doesn't do that gnat needs? Not that
I could begin to fix it, just curious.

How do we want to handle that? I mean, seems to me that with the
exception of packages like gnat & co. which cannot be compiled with
LinuxThreads, we don't want people to "get the wrong idea" and use
Maybe make it a .so-only package, so that there are no headers? Or do
you need the headers when compiling with gnat?
