Thank you very much for running the test cases! Looking at the values
<target-os> can be set to I wonder which other plaforms need -pthread:

aix, bsd, cygwin, darwin, freebsd, hpux, iphone, linux, netbsd, openbsd,
osf, qnx, qnxnto, sgi, solaris, unix, unixware, windows

So far it's Linux and FreeBSD. Or does unix mean it's set for all
Unix-like platforms?
