I have a question about this (or similar solutions), as I hope to do  
some Objective-C programming soon with SOPE <http://>.  If the Objective-C library  
requires pthreads, why does not the Objective-C library already  
contain the references to that library?  It seems rather strange to  
me that system library dependencies have to be manually met in my own  
compile statements...
