Ha. :-). Sorry for the ironic laugh..... But that's not
neccessarily true. I know Solaris + Linux do, but we really
do need a separate config for the pthread part, otherwise
I guarentee on some platform you've never heard of we will
fail to build :-).

Besides, it's good engineering to be able to turn them
off in the build by editing the config.h to test problems
with & without.
