In theory it could, but we do NOT know how it would affect the purity of
the build, and it would not affect the host requirements. We'd still
need a kernel running on the host that could support NPTL, cause we'd
need the binaries built in chapter 6 to work properly.
Building chap 5 with LinuxThreads and Chap 6 with NPTL I wouldn't want
to do without a full iterative test to ensure the build reproduces itself.
