not true.

2.2.14ish I did:

./configure --disable-threads

 From stock bind to chroot'ed/non-root bind in 5 minutes (based on compile time)

Now you DO need 2.3.99-pre3 or up to use threads and the 
chroot/non-uid0 ... but disabling threads, in most environments, 
doesn't do much to hinder performance at all. :)
