I'm using belfs, but this is not related to it (at least not directly).
When installing postfix 2.1.1 i got some unresolved symbols:

undefined reference to `pthread_condattr_setpshared'
undefined reference to `pthread_mutexattr_destroy'
undefined reference to `pthread_mutexattr_init'
undefined reference to `pthread_mutex_trylock'

after some googline I found:

so I added 

make makefiles AUXLIBS="-lpthread"

before make .. that fixed it ( maybe it should, could be added to blfs

The more important part is:

Warning: if you use Berkeley DB version 2 or later, do not enable DB 1.85
compatibility mode. Doing so would break fcntl file locking.

Blfs install instructions say for DB say


I'm not sure if that is something wrong. Just want to drop a note.

P.S. I know this is lfs-dev not blfs-dev but I'm not subscribed to that and
I think most of blfs-dev users are subscribed to this list too ( I hope).
So sorry for that.
