  Another possible issue is that at one point configure was using GNU
Pth instead of LinuxThreads by default.  Since Pth is fairly young,
there may be issues there as well.  Pth is no longer preferred over
  For non-Linux users:  LinuxThreads is the default pthreads
implementation on Linux, and GNU Pth is a new "portable"
implementation that I understand is very young and unstable.
