Perhaps you should also read the source.  Here is what libstdc++ does:

      AC_MSG_CHECKING([for thread model used by GCC])
      target_thread_file=`$CC -v 2>&1 | sed -n 's/^Thread model: //p'`
      if test $target_thread_file != single; then

That's it.  No pthread/posix checks.  That's all the knowledge that libstdc++
has of threads:  whatever the threading model is reported to be by xgcc.

Well, I'm no expert, but that would seem to be the problem.  My
specs-to-English is rusty, but doesn't this mean "if -pthread isn't given,
assume single"?  Should it not be doing some kind of check on whether or
not to print "aix"?
