But possibly the wrong ones. Passing --verbose to the linker I guess
would show which libraries are bound.

The create_test already shows that not even a simple thread can be
created. I suspect we would end up at pthread_create not returning.
Could you please try to compile the examples from libs/thread/examples?
We than could insert there some tracing output to confirm this suspicion.
Possibly we should do this in HEAD?
BTW.: Can you afford some more time now, or do we need to break soon?
Also what about meeting on an IRC channel to get faster turn around?
