Im assuming that on some platforms, adding -pthreads to the gcc commandSee:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2127797/significance-of-pthread-flag-when-compiling It would appear that even though our built-in specs understand
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?
Hmmm... Using the configure option:
configure gives me the following ominous message:
checking pthread.h presence... yes
checking for pthread.h... yes
configure: WARNING: pthreads seem to be available but you are using
configure: WARNING: This is almost always a mistake and can render
Privoxy unacceptable slow.
configure: WARNING: Also various Privoxy features only work when using
threads and won't even compile
Compiling, I get (as a start):
gcc.exe -c -pipe -g -O2 -Zexe -DNDEBUG -Wall cgisimple.c -o cgisimple.o
cgisimple.c: In function 'cgi_show_client_tags':
cgisimple.c:376:10: warning: implicit declaration of function
376 | privoxy_mutex_lock(&client_tags_mutex);
I'm not sure what else might need to be done to use native threads vs
POSIX. I'll re-read configure as time permits.
Thanks for the suggestion.
PS - I'll bet this just builds fine with EMX. LOL
Actually, it used to build fine with VACPP and was the supported way. OK, looking, Version 3.0.29 removed OS/2 support, from the changelog,
- Removed OS/2 support. We haven't provided OS/2 packages in years,
it complicated the code and it depended on a fallback snprintf()
implementation which is GPLv2 only.
- Remove the fallback snprintf() implementation
Now that OS/2 support is gone we no longer need it.
Could probably find the commit that removed it and restore or at least see if the warpin script was in the tree.
