No.  User specified configuration options, including those
within $LIBS, must be checked first.  See archives for detail
discussions of this issue.

-devel has improved checks that should handle this situation.

With OpenLDAP 1.2.x, you must tell configure to ignore the
bogus pthread_create in $LIBS.  See the FAQ for details.

This approach is not recommended as it will cause all OpenLDAP
applications are linked with $LIBS.
