Please back this out.

I haven't had a chance to reply to you because this is a complicated
matter.  It also seemed that maybe you wished the patch you sent to be
forwarded back to the FSF and not committed in our repo.  We can't just
remove this like this w/o coordinating with the code in the FSF repo.
{Net,Open}BSD and Linux all accept the "-pthread" option.  By removing
support for it we are the odd man out on accepted GCC options.  You also
break Makefile compatability with FreeBSD 4.x.
