Why do you need an error when you build the library? Presumably ports
people actually run the libraries that they build with an application
to test them. If the thread functions don't resolve, you'll get a
runtime error stating which library contained an unresolved reference.
I think these things have a way of working themselves out without having
to be too clever. 8-)
