Except that just as in the dynamic case, we want programs to have the option
of not linking with pthread, and using the stubs instead. However, we also
don't want to force programs to explicitly link to libpthread-stubs.a if they
don't use threads; that seems like an annoying requirement to impose,
particularly since we can't express it in pkg-config.
