Compatibility with Debian 4.0?

A quick thing to try is to use _SC_PAGESIZE instead of _SC_PAGE_SIZE.
(They're supposed to be the same, but they are not quite straight at
the moment, it seems.)

I'm able to configure and build everything without errors (although
there are about 926 warnings); however, my application fails when
it tries to spawn a thread using pthread_create.  I managed to
trace the error back to sysconf(_SC_PAGE_SIZE) returning -1
resulting in __pthread_initialize_manager attempting to malloc a
block of memory with a negative size.  I'm at a loss as to why
sysconf is returning "unsupported" for the page size.
