Don't use glibc and NPTL on sparc64. There is a critial bug with futex !

It actually depends on the machine. For example UltraSparc 5 or 10 are
running nicely with the NPTL glibc.

    I have seen this bug on a 5 with Uii@333 CPU...

Thanks. I'll try it on a spare U-10 and see what happens. This isn't production, I'm trying to track down problems in Free Pascal and Lazarus both of which almost work under Linux-SPARC but (I suspect) assume NPTL is available.

I've been scratching my head for weeks over this one, and only got a hint of the solution when somebody elsewhere had a very similar problem on an ARM system.
