in the process of testing 2.2.1 I ran into a bug on SGI that has been 
there since at least 2.2: if you build with threads you get an undefined 
error on pthread_detach() while linking the interpreter.

I think the solution is to change the autoconf test that decides which 
libraries to add for pthread (make it refer not only the thread_create() 
but also thread_detach()), but as pthread_detach apparently isn't 
available in all pthread implementations (if I understand the small 
forest of ifdefs inside thread_pthread.h correctly) I'm not sure this 
won't break anything else.

Could some pthread guru please have a look at bug #522393?
