# SYNOPSIS
#
# ACX_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.

# 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)
