Something you should know if you haven't discovered it since your email:
turning thread support on and off is only supported by the command-line flags
like "-pthread" or "-mthreads" or whatever is appropriate for your platform.
Preprocessor symbol hacks like _NOTHREADS were never documented and aren't
really supported.


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
