Re: Suggested changes for OSX port (ITS#1194)

That change would defeat the purpose of the test.  The
purpose of the test is to ensure pthread_detach works.
If it doesn't, then one shouldn't build --with-threads
as threads will be leaked.

As far as the -fno-common issue, how does configure
fail when this is not set?
