This was reported to me in IRC yesterday. I've updated the glibc bug
(http://bugs.linuxfromscratch.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69) to keep track -
essentially we will be using the linuxthreads tarball so we can install
the threading documentation. The '--enable-addons' instruction tells
glibc to build any addons it finds - as it finds NPTL and linuxthreads,
./configure figures out that NPTL is preferred so uses that...apparently!
