The coreutils build just failed on our integration server
as it doesn't have <pthread.h>

checking for pthread.h... no
building pthread.h
  <command used to generate rather than GEN ...>
sort.c:236:3: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 
sort.c:243:3: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'pthread_mutex_t'
sort.c:3144:3: warning: implicit declaration of function 'pthread_spin_lock'

So currently the coreutils code would need more ifdefs
which I would prefer not to do, or we could expand the
emulation in pthread.h.in

What do you think?
