Hi guys,

Im assuming that on some platforms, adding -pthreads to the gcc command
line causes -lpthreads to be added by gcc automatically.

It would appear that even though our built-in specs understand pthread, we
don't understand it quite as fully as gcc on other platforms.


I'm using gcc 9.2.0. I wonder if I should try building with a different gcc, and if the behavior is different (different=does not require a full path to the library), perhaps a bug report is in order?
