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!

Cheers,

Matt.
