I have no memories about that commit, but it seems odd. On Linux
you're supposed to use CFLAGS=-pthread instead of linking with
-lpthread. A minority of pkgconfig files on my system have -pthread in
Cflags, but I suspect that would be the righe thing to do and then we
should remove this hunk from configure.ac. At least, that's my guess
