AFAIK you can just compile and install GNU Pth, no need to update
Slackware's glibc.

Actually, I have created SlackBuilds for GnuPG 2.x and all it's
dependencies, including libpth. I only tested these scripts under
Slackware 11.0, but you could give them a try under Slackware 9.1.

You can find them at:

Create and install the packages following the order above and you
shouldn't have any problems regarding dependencies. Also, these scripts
should take care of downloading the sources (and its signatures), if

Let me know if/how it works out.
