Since the thread tests are the first real tests performed by APR's
autoconf - any additional CPPFLAGS (or whatnot) will get passed to
all subsequent tests.  I think this is Jeff's concern (perfectly 
valid - I have it too).

Looking at configure,in, I don't think we could move the threading 
tests around too much.  It looks like it is in the right place.
