Nice document!

One thing I'm missing:

The pthread libraries change probably requires people to recompile things 
linked to it if they're migrating from 4.x - users updating from 5.x-Releases 
can get away with setting up libmap.conf (maybe this is true for updating 
from 4.x as well, can some threads expert comment on it?).
