I'm sorry, I do not understand this response.
1) "You wasted your time creating the patch, the port will be removed at the
end of the month."
2) "You need to file a bug on threads maintainer."
3) Something else?
I submitted all the information I had to
a) get this port back into working shape
b) explain the problem to anyone who understand gl/threads and the linker and
is willing to spend the 5 minutes to fix it
What am I missing to save this port? Since I am the reason it was marked
deprecated in the first place, I feel responsible for a useful piece of software
getting deleted from the tree; granted it took a lot of
beating-head-against-wall to figure out what is wrong and get it to work, but
certainly less than writing the thing from scratch.
