well, I just built it (1.30.0) under NPTL on RH9, and all its tests
run ok. NPTL is just another (better) implementation of the pthreads
API, so there's every chance of things built for linuxthreads working

that said, there's a lot of linuxthreads *behavior* which was cleaned
up in NPTL (eg. signals) so you may well find a kludge or two which no
longer need to be used, or which are masking / working around correct
