# SYNOPSIS
#
# AX_PTHREAD([ACTION-IF-FOUND[, ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND]])
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
# This macro figures out how to build C programs using POSIX threads. It
# sets the PTHREAD_LIBS output variable to the threads library and linker
# flags, and the PTHREAD_CFLAGS output variable to any special C compiler
# flags that are needed. (The user can also force certain compiler
# flags/libs to be tested by setting these environment variables.)
#
# Also sets PTHREAD_CC to any special C compiler that is needed for
# multi-threaded programs (defaults to the value of CC otherwise). (This
# is necessary on AIX to use the special cc_r compiler alias.)
#
# NOTE: You are assumed to not only compile your program with these flags,
# but also link it with them as well. e.g. you should link with
# $PTHREAD_CC $CFLAGS $PTHREAD_CFLAGS $LDFLAGS ... $PTHREAD_LIBS $LIBS
#
# If you are only building threads programs, you may wish to use these
# variables in your default LIBS, CFLAGS, and CC:
#
# LIBS="$PTHREAD_LIBS $LIBS"
# CFLAGS="$CFLAGS $PTHREAD_CFLAGS"
# CC="$PTHREAD_CC"
#
# In addition, if the PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE thread-attribute constant
# has a nonstandard name, defines PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE to that name
# (e.g. PTHREAD_CREATE_UNDETACHED on AIX).
#
# ACTION-IF-FOUND is a list of shell commands to run if a threads library
# is found, and ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND is a list of commands to run it if it
# is not found. If ACTION-IF-FOUND is not specified, the default action
# will define HAVE_PTHREAD.
#
# Please let the authors know if this macro fails on any platform, or if
# you have any other suggestions or comments. This macro was based on work
# by SGJ on autoconf scripts for FFTW (http://www.fftw.org/) (with help
# from M. Frigo), as well as ac_pthread and hb_pthread macros posted by
# Alejandro Forero Cuervo to the autoconf macro repository. We are also
# grateful for the helpful feedback of numerous users.

# We must check for the threads library under a number of different

# (e.g. DEC) have both -lpthread and -lpthreads, where one of the
# libraries is broken (non-POSIX).
# Create a list of thread flags to try. Items starting with a "-" are
# C compiler flags, and other items are library names, except for "none"
# which indicates that we try without any flags at all, and "pthread-config"
# which is a program returning the flags for the Pth emulation library.

# The ordering *is* (sometimes) important. Some notes on the
# individual items follow:
# pthreads: AIX (must check this before -lpthread)
# none: in case threads are in libc; should be tried before -Kthread and
# other compiler flags to prevent continual compiler warnings
# -Kthread: Sequent (threads in libc, but -Kthread needed for pthread.h)
# -kthread: FreeBSD kernel threads (preferred to -pthread since SMP-able)
# lthread: LinuxThreads port on FreeBSD (also preferred to -pthread)
# -pthread: Linux/gcc (kernel threads), BSD/gcc (userland threads)
# -pthreads: Solaris/gcc
# -mthreads: Mingw32/gcc, Lynx/gcc
# -mt: Sun Workshop C (may only link SunOS threads [-lthread], but it
# doesn't hurt to check since this sometimes defines pthreads too;
# also defines -D_REENTRANT)
# ... -mt is also the pthreads flag for HP/aCC
# pthread: Linux, etcetera
# --thread-safe: KAI C++
# pthread-config: use pthread-config program (for GNU Pth library)

# (non-functional) versions of the pthreads routines, so link-based
# tests will erroneously succeed. (We need to link with -pthreads/-mt/
# -lpthread.) (The stubs are missing pthread_cleanup_push, or rather
# a function called by this macro, so we could check for that, but
# who knows whether they'll stub that too in a future libc.) So,
# we'll just look for -pthreads and -lpthread first:
