That's a former DEC alpha, right ? Perhaps running configure with
'--with-dec-threads' will solve the problem ? I'm not sure if that will work
alone, so you might need '--with-dec-threads --with-threads=no' to disable
You can also try this by hand; after running configure, edit
Modules/Makefile.pre, and change
(not -lthreads, just -threads) That seems to be the only difference
I looked at this before, but don't have an alpha or anything else that needs
--with-dec-threads, so I couldn't detect this automatically. I do think it
should be done automatically, though. Perhaps I can figure it if you can
send me, for instance, config.log and the output of configure, and find the
time to run a few tests later.

If the above doesn't fix it, I can take a look at the output of configure
and config.log. No need to see the output of make just yet.
