is this definitive, i.e. that on 5.x linuxthreads are worse off than native 
freebsd threads ? i'm not trying to be a troll, but over on the asterisk 
mailing lists, we're in the midst of discussing if /usr/ports/net/asterisk 
should be using linuxthreads or pthreads by default. on 4.x (which i'm 
still on), linuxthreads has oodles better performance than native pthreads, 
but i havent really done any testing on 5.x or 6.x.

any advice here would be much appreciated.
