-pthread is the most common scenario, but there are others - if bored
skim through m4/ax_pthread.m4 but be warned !
The gist is that, like pretty much everything else - the user just
adds the CFLAGS/LIBS pair and doesn't need to worry about any of the

The thread you linked works around people forgetting to use the pair.
Which will work in some places but not others.

That said, if things get too nasty - just sent the lot that you're
