Ah... I see. Disconnect on my part. It's in the build section, not
the requirements section.

Yes. Now I guess the point (beyond the link bug in the build system
for <dll>) is that I think a build section/rule variable should be
included in the regression tests. It's important that I be able to
insure the various subvariants compile, link, and pass runtime
tests. This will become more important if I can turn pthread-win32
support into a variant on Windows platforms.
