I didn't realize you allowed offsite people to modify the faq-o-matic,
although a second look shows this to be true.
I also realize that this answer looks a lot like some of the other answers
for other OS's regarding pthreads, however it is slightly different and
took a little digging through the man pages on DU. If this had been in
there, it would have saved me some trouble right off the bat.

Here is the tail of the config.log:
configure:4333: checking if pthread_create() works
configure:4365: cc -o conftest -g conftest.c -lpthreads -lmach -lexc
configure: failed program was:
#line 4342 "configure"
#define NULL (void*)0
static void *task(p)
return (void *) (p == NULL);
int main(argc, argv)
exit(pthread_create(&t, NULL, task, NULL));
