Need detection of preemptive behavior
CPPFLAGS=-DPTHREAD_PREEMPTIVE needed on some systems
Need detection of other thread options.
Added --with-thread=manual to allow thread options

Options now allow specification of API separate from DB type.
API: db2 db gdbm ndbm
types: btree hash
Added --with_ldbm_api=manual to allow LDBM options
