No, this change is wrong. You'll have to replace all occurencies of
_x_rmutex_...() with the original functions pthread_mutex_...().
But it's likely, that you'll experience a crash in _x_lock_frontend().
This happens at least on my system from time to time and that's why I
didn't release 0.7.5 yet.
