What do you want to achieve? I pulled thread.jam into Jamfile.v2 in order
to simplify the build, and ensure that the thrd-api stuff was carried over
into things outside the boost thread .dll and .lib files.

As I understand it, boost_thread_pthread was just a build that was
guaranteed to use pthread, even on Windows. You can achieve this by
putting thrd-api=pthread on the bjam command line:

bjam msvc-7.1 thrd-api=pthread

If that's not what you want, let me know, and we can find a way to do it.
That may be to bring back boost_thread_pthread or split thread.jam back
out again, but there may be a better way.
