Build scmgit-base without pthreads


I'm seeing exactly the issue described in this thread on the Git
mailing list.:

My system is Solaris 9, with pkgsrc-bootstrapped gcc3.4.

Upon a git clone I see:

error: cannot create thread: Unknown error
fatal: fetch-pack: unable to fork off sideband demultiplexer
Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

The fix/workaround seems to be to build Git without pthreads.  I
appended NO_PTHREADS=YesPlease to MAKE_FLAGS in scmgit-base Makefile,
and rebuilt it, and it worked.


1) Is  this the best approach?  Should there be a Makefile patch?  It
feels kinda dirty to have to hack the Makefile
2) What's the best way to share this for other users, so they don't get bitten?
