There is not enough information in STATUS to go on.
Do you have a testcase, or pointers to further information?
There is a lot of activity going on these days to enhance

David Xu <davidxu@freebsd.org>, one of the main FreeBSD developers involved 
with threading, has tested httpd-2.x.

Again, if you have pointers to more concrete information or testcases,
then that would be helpful.
