FYI, AFAIS there are really only two such target headers being checked
incorrectly: have_pthread_h and have_thread_h.  My proposed solution
should cover both although I only showed the change as it affects
have_pthread_h.  How about this instead:

if [test x$host != x$target]; then
	if [test x$with_headers = x]; then
		# set have_*thread_h with a test based on value of with_headers
	AC_CHECK_HEADER(thread.h, [have_thread_h=yes], [have_thread_h=])
	AC_CHECK_HEADER(pthread.h, [have_pthread_h=yes], [have_pthread_h=])

If an autoconf guru for gcc agrees with my analysis, then we could
submit a formal patch.  However, I still don't know what actual code
should go in the shell comment above without more investigation.
