  Maybe this should be combined with a

  BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.pth?= pth{,-syscall}>=1.4.0

  in pth's (and also pth-syscall's)  This way, the default
would still depend on USE_PTHREAD and PTHREAD_TYPE settings, but the
"other" pth would also be accepted.

  BTW, I've been running with pth-syscall (focibly injected in place of
a pre-existing pth) for a couple of days, without any problems so far. 
I have about 50 packages installed that depend on pth (most of them
gnome packages).  So it seems like the syscall-hard problems of earlier
versions have been fixed ...
