Well going back that far shouldn't be necesary unless there are major issues with glibc-2.5 it has linuxthreads, and it does compile. I would need to continue with the build to ensure its stable.
I came across mentions of debian's patches, but have not located the patches yet. I will have dig for em, but they should be in the normal places. I just hadn't looked hard yet. Thought I would ask on the list to see if I was missing something first. I will check the apt repo's and get back to list on that.

#1: I noticed Debian has 2.5, maybe 2.5.1, patches for linuxthreads.
#2: I thought about using GNU-Pth (portable threads), but since Glibc can't be
built without threading this didn't seem to be helpfull.
#3: There's Redhat's 2.4.21 patch which add's nptl support, but this patch is
integrated with other patches and all together it's like 20MB of differences.
#4: Or, use Glibc-2.3.6 for the Linux-2.4 branch. Several distro's still use
2.3.6, so finding the bug fixes shouldn't be difficult.
Debian's Glibc patches might be the best choice.
