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"?
