Hi Jon,

nice work. I really don't have the to do any real testing until next
week. So for now just a couple of short comments:

a) have you compared the sgf files of analyzed matches between the
0.15 and current branches?

b) from a code maintenance point of view having only one thread
implementation would be best. Are there any advantage of windows
threads over gthreads? If you really have to use functions from
pthreads I think it would be better not to mix them with glib.

c) lets remove the REDUCTION code. My guess is that it is largely
unused and at some point will stop working anyway.

d) gnubg compiles with minor changes on linux with or without changes,
but there is a problem with makebearoff and the other utility
programs: when multithread in config.h is enabled eval.c implies
multithread.c, which implies gnubg.c and gnubg.c has it's own main

e) when the code becomes stable I think it would be nice to be able to
compile threads in always and to enable them at startup or when the
user wishes to. Then on both windows and in linux distributions only
one binary would be needed.
