Should be possible. Btw. Has setting kern.threads.virtual_cpu to a different
value effect for running programms or just started ones ?

Yes, all clamd installations we have run with libthr, since libptread is
completly unusable and libc_r has small hangs from time to time. The
question is just if this is a clamd problem or an threading library
