Roger that. Those bugs must be fixed. Please submit your patches to the 
software authors. They will resist with some sort of "such change will 
break a lot of software builds" but may be are the lucky one. Just try ;-)
However there is one thing which is more complicated than it seems to 
be. On FreeBSD pthead library still must be linked directly to program 
binary. And this is what we handle locally.
