libntl for KNC

libntl for KNC

Does anyone know if it is possible to port the Number Theory Library (NTL) on the Phi?

Thanks in advance, 

Tasos K.

The NTL description at http://www.shoup.net/ntl/doc/tour-impl.html says 

NTL is neither thread-safe nor re-entrant, and making it so would require a fundamental redesign

Since the whole point of Xeon Phi is to enable highly parallel codes, porting a non-thread safe library seems unlikely to be productive.
