Just that a library uses pthread mutexes is not enough reason to
link it against libpthread. This can be called "thread-aware but
not actively using threads". Usually, libc provides stubs which
evaluate to no-ops for non-threaded processes. For older systems,
ther is some pthread-stublib in pkgsrc.

That would be too much. I think the whole concept of dlopen.bl3
implying threads is not a good idea. This should always be under
control of the main program.
