Good deal.  Thanks.

    This invokes the thread safe version of xlc. It should be used
when any kind of multi-threaded code is being built. This is
equivalent to invoking the compiler as xlc -D_THREAD_SAFE and the
loader as xlc -L/usr/lib/threads -Lusr/lib/dce -lc_r -lpthreads.

It seems one could just enable threads and set -DHAVE_LIBPTHREAD
instead of progressing through thread checks if this compiler mode is

That's it.
