Yes the package is mentioned.

In chapter 3:

Glibc (2.2.4) - 11,932 KB:

Glibc-linuxthreads (2.2.4) - 161 KB:


In chapter 6 - installing glibc:

Installation of Glibc

Before starting to install glibc, you must cd into the glibc-2.2.4
directory and unpack glibc-linuxthreads inside the glibc-2.2.4 directory,
not in /usr/src as you normally would do.
