Yes that seems eminently reasonable (that readdir_r only be
prototyped/available if -mt is supplied).

Well, there is code in
libs/filesystem/src/operations_posix_windows.cpp that attempts to
detect if it is being compiled with multi-threading enabled:

      && defined(_SC_THREAD_SAFE_FUNCTIONS) \

Presumably aCC sets these macros incorrectly, or this code is not
correct. Maybe the check should be for >0?

Perhaps you can check what _POSIX_THREAD_SAFE_FUNCTIONS is defined to
on aCC both with and without -mt? On Linux 2.4.21 + gcc 3.3.4, I get
200112 both with -pthread and without.

#include <pthread.h>
#include <iostream>
int main () { std::cout << _POSIX_THREAD_SAFE_FUNCTIONS << std::endl; }
