Have you looked at the builtin X11 thread stub, which seems to be
available via adding:
#  define BuildThreadStubLibrary  YES 
to the file.

It then causes xc/lib/XThrStub to be built.  Which probably achieves the
desired effect.  FreeBSD and OpenBSD seem to use it.

Might also be worth checking out the effect of (although I couldn't find
it used in any Imakefile, perhaps it's out of date):
#  define NeedUIThrStubs          YES

Note I've not had time to do an X build yet, I'll try tonight.
