Quoth Paul Watson <pwatson at redlinepy.com>:
| When I try to build 2.4.2 on AIX 4.3, it fails on missing thread 
| objects.  I ran ./configure --without-threads --without-gcc.
| Before using --without-threads I had several .pthread* symbols missing. 
|   I do not have to have threading on this build, but it would be helpful 
| if it is possible.  The machine has the IBM C compiler.  Can anyone 
| suggest a configuration or some change that I can make to cause this to 
| build correctly?  Thanks.

In earlier compilers, and I think this one too, "cc_r" (instead of "xlc")
gives you the thread options and libraries.
