  That's right.  At first, I thought it actually needed a threading
package, but it seems to be the other way round (i.e., even if I fix the
include problem it will still choke when trying to build a threaded
version).  Again, this seems to be one of the not-so-nice features of
GNU configure to pick up any random crap it can find. ;-)

  Whatever, I will commit a patch for that package that prevents
configure from picking up any pthreads it finds.
