What makes you think that they're unable to fork?

2.5 gives you NPTL, which means that threaded programs can have real
threads instead of forking.

If you do a ps -eLf on a glibc2.5 system with numerous clamdscan
processes going, you will hopefully see multiple clamd lines
(same PID, different LWP number).

If you don't, maybe there's an issue with libpthread.
