The problem is that -DHAVE_PTHREAD=1 is not defined anymore, but only in that specific Makefile, which causes its structures to change size and various other side effects. As far as I can tell, the problem was introduced in commit a2f28ce "build: Use AX_PTHREAD's HAVE_PTHREAD preprocessor definition".

Thanks for the heads-up. This is my fault. I'll fix it up and make
sure it goes into the 9.0 branch.
