Hmph.  Would it work to append the new empty string at the end of
the existing list, as opposed to prepending it?  I'd prefer a
solution that is order independent, or if the change is order
dependent, then a comment to warn others from changing it later.

Perhaps "for linking with POSIX Threads" would make it clearer, as
CFLAGS (rather, PTHREAD_CFLAGS) has been checked earlier separately.
