Please read STATUS.  Our current belief is the problem is isolated
within the pthread condition variables implementation.

We have worked with them in the past to get sendfile() working with
libc_r, but at this point, there is no one who is interested in
working on fixing it.  This is a massive timesink and all of us who
worked on it gave up in frustration.  (I no longer have access to
a FreeBSD-CURRENT box, so I can't be of any help.)  -- justin
