bah. please revert this commit. the end result was what I wanted (adding
-pthread) but the test is incorrect. although we (OpenBSD) do have libpthread 
and the flag that should be used is -pthread the test is incorrect in that it 
should actually be attempting to compile a binary with the compiler using
the -pthread flag and ensuring that is successful.
