The default api possibly should be win32 in the latter case. In
principle it could be infered from -dumpmachine by evaluating
the flavor which would be in that case:

I have spent some thought about how to be able to have the compiler
choice influence the default.

My ideas are like so:

1) Make threadapi an optional feature
2) Change the <conditional> requirement to add a threadapi
   only if none specified yet and make it conditioned on
   flavor of compiler.
