 I just wanted to add something to the comments made before
 by me on the threads issue. Perhaps this serves to see if
 the port will build and run fine on 5.x.
 I contacted the software author asking for clarification on
 the threads issue and he thus replied:
 "Note that they were not patching HMMER per se here [talking
 about the patch-configure in 2.2.g], but a copy of the
 ACX_PTHREAD macro from the autoconf macro archive, which I
 include in my configure.ac. (so they oughtto've notified the
 ACX_PTHREAD author?) HMMER's relying on autoconf to get it
 the pthreads configuration right on all platforms. If any
 more problems arise here, check against the latest version
 of ACX_PTHREAD in the archive; if I need to update my copy
 of the macro in HMMER, let me know. That is, it would be
 best *not* to patch HMMER's copy of ACX_PTHREAD; better to
 patch ACX_PTHREAD itself, in the autoconf macro archive,
 then update HMMER's copy."
