The first 'release' of glibc that supports NPTL is glibc-2.3.3,
which was never officially released.  You can grab a glibc-2.3.3
tarball of sorts from some distro's SRPMs, or you can grab it from
glibc cvs:
	echo Enter "anoncvs" as the password
	cvs -z 9 -d :pserver:anoncvs at login
	cvs -z 9 -d :pserver:anoncvs at co libc
I think the date they changed the version number was mid december 2003.

However, I haven't been able to build a toolchain using glibc cvs,
so some work is still needed, and the going might be a bit annoying :-(
