We're running several MySQL databases on FreeBSD 6.1 and 6.2 RELEASE
and we don't use LINUX_THREADS. So far so good as they say.
Concerning MySQL performance on FreeBSD, I recently saw this article
which could be of interest to you:
Linux vs FreeBSD using mysql and sysbench
Aside from a potential holy flame war from FreeBSD vs Linux, this
article does present you with an interesting my.cnf configuration
file. Maybe that could interest you?
