glibc doesn't really want to compile with linuxthreads for me -
something breaks in the way errno is handled and I get "undefined
reference to errno" when linking.

Jes says we don't really want to mess with that stuff until we have
shared libs working, and I'm inclined to trust him on that :-)

I guess for now we can just ignore libstdc++ and friends...
