Question about missing posix shared mutex

Hi guys!

According to the sphinxsearch dev-team freebsd does not support posix 
pthread shared mutex but later on i found this post that gave some 
pointers that it might been implemented into freebsd 9:

However 9.0-RELEASE doesnt have it so i tried out 9-STABLE but it isnt 
in there either.

There is also a pretty long bugthread on sphinxsearch's bugtracker about it:

Basically my question is if there is work being done on this and if we 
will see it in 9.1? Or should i abandon freebsd for our sphinxhosts? :(

Best regards
