Hi again,

Both `AC_CHECK_LIB' and `AC_CHECK_FUNC' check whether a *symbol* can be
found in the given library (or in one of `$LIBS').  However, on Tru64
UNIX 5.1 (aka. Digital UNIX, OSF1, ...) <pthread.h> does the following:

  #define pthread_create __pthread_create

Note that pthreads are generally quite painful to detect properly on a wide variety of systems, since there is wide variety in flags etc.; you might want to use my ACX_PTHREAD macro at the autoconf macro repository.
