Take a look at ACE for a well-designed threading/network solution.

http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/ACE-overview.html

The full library has all sorts of bells and whistles, but you can use
subsets for those sections your app requires.
(just low level frameworks for threads maybe)

Even if you're not interested in threads/networks, take a look at how they
support lots of compilers and OS.

Douglas Schmidt is 'into' patterns and good design practices. It shows in
the code.

That's not to say that alternatives aren't worth designing, but with that
and the gnu pthreads project
http://www.gnu.org/software/pth/pth.html
which could be wrapped up into C++, there are good quality alternatives
already.
