static compiling will link libpthread but not libthr.
I found setting larger buffer in /etc/my.cnf will yield much better result
than default configuration, also turnning off log-bin option makes a 
different on my machine.
mysql 5.x is much better than 4.1 on select benchmark, almost extra 25%
performance improvement I can get on athlon64 X2 3800+ running in
64-bit mode.
