I believe most of your questions are answered at

In principle, this is not true.  However, I have not seen anyone
recently compiling glibc without either LinuxThreads or NPTL on Linux.

On non-Linux architectures, you certainly do _not_ need LinuxThreads,
the FreeBSD port by Bruno Haible is a good example I think.

Please see the above web page.

would be best.

diff -u.  And with ChangeLogs (I recommend GNU emacs' changelog-mode).
