 It'd be nice if boxes with non-broken installs could use nptl. Right
 now, it does not give that great of a perf boost. However, in HEAD
 there are patches that make NPTL a huge win.

+Thanks for the reply ;)
+Hm.. I don't know why guys at Fedora screwed the libc/nptl thing. Just
+there are only i386 and i686 versions of libc. The i386 doesn't have
+nptl :( There are still some <i686 CPUs out there (like AMD K6) and
+IMHO it's a rather serious problem.
+The standard arch at Fedora is apparently i386 without NPTL so maybe
+it would be better to have RPMs compatible with this?
+I also would prefer to use NPTL, because it's newer and faster as
+you've noticed.. But it seems that not using NPTL is Fedora's choice,
+at least until they aren't moving to at least i486. :( Or maybe I'm
+wrong and someone should report bug at Fedora and ask for compiling
+new libc RPMs for i486?
+Anyway, I think no-one want to compile Mono or even libc (yikes! that
+takes about a day on my decent PC..) to run .NET on his Fedora.
