I agree that would be the sensible change.  We've already added -pthread
to gcc on Solaris and IRIX purely to support libgomp's configury.
However I'm not sure we're quite ready to make that a requirement of a
port.  Making libgomp's configury more flexible seems like a good
intermediate/compromise step.

We've also got PR's for enabling libgomp to use of system thread libraries
other than POSIX pthreads.  :-)
