pthreads-1.0 library & statvfs functions

Hi guys,

I've been using v2.1.102 as a production platform and over the weekend I
successfully ported most of my employer's core application to Linux from
SunOS 5.4/5.5, I have just two questions I hope you'll answer.

1. What's the latest version of libpthreads? (libc-5) - I found a
version on but it's 1.0 (works fine though, but I'm a bit
nervous about 1.0 versions!). Filename was pthreads-1.0.tar.gz. The core
application depends on sigwait() which is in that library.

2. Are the statvfs functions (statvfs() and fstatvfs()) actually
implemented in Linux? My employer's core product relies on this for one
of the core programs. Any pointers here I would be grateful for. This is
defined in sys/statvfs.h on SunOS 5.4/5.5. If it's not implemented, any
pointers on how I can emulate this on Linux?
