With libkse (renamed to libpthread in 5.3 and -current) and
libthr, yes, but both are experimental in this release. You
really want 5.3 or -current if you want to use libpthread or
libthr. With libc_r, no.

Only with the linuxthreads port. With libc_r, no. Neither
libpthread nor libthr are available for 4.x (and won't be).
There is no pbind() or processor_bind() (ala Solaris) in
FreeBSD (yet). Julian has to add them ;-)
