If there is a dependence, it's not new. Python can be compiled with or
without thread support; I'm guessing that one of the Python.h facilities
used by the extension module is using it somehow.

Maybe the Python isn't compiled --with-threads on those other platforms, or
maybe there's another reason. I'm just guessing, since the link error
sounded threading-related.
