Also - if you would like, I have a more advanced API for writing
libevent based HTTP servers which has built-in thread pool support. 

At the moment it has only been tested on OSX >= LION, and Linux 2.6.x.
You can get the source here: https://github.com/ellzey/libevhtp

This API can be used just like a simple libevent http server (but is
much more flexible) just like you would with evhttp. If you wanted to
create the most simple of http servers with 4 worker threads, the code
woud look like this:


#include <evhtp.h>

static void
default_cb(evhtp_request_t * request, void * arg) {
	evbuffer_add_printf(request->buffer_out, "hi! %s\n", (char *)arg);

	evhtp_send_reply(req, EVHTP_RES_200);

main(int argc, char ** argv) {
	struct event_base * evbase      = event_base_new();
	evhtp_t           * htp         = evhtp_new(evbase, NULL);
  int                 num_workers = 4;

	evhtp_set_gencb(htp, default_cb, "foobar");
  evhtp_use_threads(htp, num_workers);
  evhtp_bind_socket(htp, "", 8080);

  event_base_loop(evbase, 0);

  return 0;
