It seems to only use pthread_mutex, but when building without -lpthread, 
it does not work anymore: OpenSC clients cannot access  the token anymore
(ssh-agent gets "no slots").

I can workarounf that regression for ssh-agent by doing 
LD_PREOAD=/usr/lib/ but this method cannot be used 
for pam modules that are loaded by setuid binaries such as su or login.
