Debian with their default headers and dynamic libraries.

So because other distrib mades bad choices, Debian must follow. Good point. I will check and report if this is even true latter on.

That is not even true :
1) <http://www.suse.com/en/private/products/suse_linux/prof/packages_professional/glibc-devel.html>

Suze provides both threading in in glibc-devel with I think is coherent.

	2) Fedora does the same �%� than debian

	3) Mandrake provide a nptl-devel.

OK, we will ship /usr/include/nptl in future, like
/usr/lib/libpthread.a issue (#276062).  I tagged this bug as wishlist,
and changed title, and merged with #276062.  If you have another
comments, please let us know.

I beg to disagree : it is a clear bug to compile with linuxthread includes when running NPTL threads. Not a whislist.

Doing this you are behaving like a child saying everything I do is perfect. Come on, grow up... And by the way, the debian patched glibc does not seem to work with ntpl static...

A whishlist would be please upgrade to glibc 2.3.3 because your libc is so old...
