That doesn't really help unless it's handled officially upstream.
i.e. I believe a given SONAME for a given library name on a given
platform should always produce the exact same ABI.

If I recall correctly, the problem was that "make check" was failing
when threads were enabled.  I re-enabled threads because it looked
like the problem may have been fixed (perhaps indirectly) in 1.8,.2,
