Hello all,

I have a question here, when is the GECKO_PTHREAD_LIBS taken from the and when is it taken from the Makefile of a thunderbird for 

The reason I ask, I try to build thunderbird on powerpc. The powerpc cc 
dumps the pthread stuff not in the first line. So a finer grep pattern 
should be used, like the one Ed@ introduced for firefox3 ('%{\!pg: 
%{pthread:' iso 'pthread').

I put this into the Makefile from thunderbird but I did not succeed. A 
bit debugging told me that I can write what I want into this grep 
pattern, it always gives me the same output. Then I found 
and there I replaced the pattern. Bingo, now thunderbird has started 

Can anyone help me explaining?
