The concept of 'USE' flags is pretty unique to Gentoo and is related to the 
package management system it uses, hence the 'correct' solution above was 
correct in that it was the Gentoo way to fix it. With Mandrake, the 'correct' 
way is less obvious to me (I don't use it myself) but, assuming it doesn't 
ship with the 2.6 kernel + NPTL, you probably want to specify --without-nptl 
to configure.
