Gnu Pth's pthread emulation (--enable-pthread) is supported.  That
is, requirements for OpenLDAP's --with-threads[=pthreads] can be
fullfilled by the pthread emulation provided by Gnu Pth.  It's my
understanding that on some systems, Gnu Pth (and other 3rd party
pthread providers) is not able to provide this emulation due to
conflicts with system headers.

We have native support for GNU Pth implemented in devel.  This
has yet be ported to 1.2.

It's recommended on those systems where GNU Pth can provide
working Pthread emulation.
