From @tobez

There is one more things that changed in 4.0 recently - the version of
the threaded C library has changed from 3 to 4. On my machine the old
library was not removed during the upgrade, and the libc_r sniffer in
hints/ went Microsoft way and decided there is no threaded
library at all. :-) While this is not a normal situation by any
means, the libc_r sniffer can be made more clever -- and this is
entirely my fault it was not made such before. Here is the patch
(including the previous change, against the original _58)​:

Customary :-) failure of pragma/warning is there as well.
