I think it should be possible to build without pthreads if you just make a
few minor tweaks. I fiddled around with this a little bit and got something
that seems to mostly work on a branch here (though I have not really tested
I mostly just had to do the following:
- Update configure.ac to unset HAVE_PTHREAD
- Update stubs/common.cc to provide a no-op implementation of the Mutex
Of course this assumes that your application will be single-threaded; if
you were to build the code in this configuration and then use threads
anyway, things would go wrong because you have data races caused by the
lack of real locking.
