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 see some configure scripts doing 3 or 4 pthread checks before deciding on the one to use for us.
BTW, doesn't privoxy have native OS/2 threads support or was it removed?
