Also, there doesn't seem to be any way to get to that URL from the Ubuntu
search bar in the Ubuntu firefox package. The only options there are:
"package names", "descriptions", "source package names" and "package

search for "pthread_create" in either "descriptions" or "package contents"
to provide the result he is trying to find. But neither do.
