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