I must have spent at least a day looking at configure threads tests
the past few months. Look at the tests in Python, OpenLDAP, MySQL,
Apache 2.0, Perl, ... each and everyone of them is different!
Ouch. Way above my experience in configure.

One of the packages (sorry cannot find my notes on which one!) I
looked at down the test on a per-OS level - supplying the tread
compile and link flags used on that OS and CC to see if they
worked... Probably the simplest way to go?
