This is the solution I am currently implementing for pkgsrc.  I need
two issues to be clarified before I start modifying packages:

(1) I have a shared library that dlopens shared modules that may be
    potentially link with "-pthread".  Should this shared library be
    linked with "-pthread"?

(2) I have an application that links against this above shared library.
    Does this application need to be linked with "-pthread"?
