ok. Though i was thinking that we needed to check if pthread was available 
in configure stuff to decide what to do:

AC_CHECK_FUNCS(funclist, [], [PKG_CONFIG_LIBS='-L${libdir} -lpthread-stubs'])

funclist being he funtions described in list.m4. If you want to check 
these functions, you have to provide:
  * the path for the header pthread.h
  * the path and the name for the library.
