[xml/sgml-pkgs] Possible problems making libxml2 non-threaded?

we have a special problem that we would like to link to libxml2 but have
the problem that in our special case[1] we cannot use a pthread-enabled

My question now simply is: Would there be any known (or suspected)
problems if we rebuilt the libxml2 packages with --without-threads other
than losing some performance?

Thanks for a brief reply



[1] We use Condor (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/) for our cluster and
use the so-called Standard Universe where the binaries are linked
against a specially patched glibc which does not support forking,
certain signals and threads. Since it's very beneficial for us to use
this mode and we would like to use libxml2 we are very interested in
this answer without wanting to sacrifice the stability of our syste,s.
