We're planning to port an application to HP-UX 11i (v1 & v2) using gcc 3.2 and the implementation uses Posix threads. 

Here is a statement from GCC website that I need some clarification with:
Thread support is not implemented in GCC 3.0 through 3.2, so the --enable-threads configure option does not work. In 3.3 and later, POSIX threads are supported.

Does it mean - gcc itself cannot use pthreads in the 3.2 version, so gcc itself is a single-threaded program OR
- gcc cannot correctly build code which uses pthreads ?
Please clarify.  

Thanks in Advance!
