IIRC, the OS doesn't *fully* support pthreads, but it supports enough
to warrant enabling BOOST_HAS_PTHREADS so we can see which parts of
the threading library work. That's why I turned on
BOOST_HAS_PTHREADS for HP. If it's causing more problems than it's
solving, we should probably just turn it off.
