I don't know, i've always been adding to LIBS in the Makefile since I
started using HPSA in apache.

But we seem to only be using pthread_mutex_init(),
pthread_mutex_lock/unlock(), pthread_mutexattr_init(), and

If httpd is linked sans thread libs, then calling these functions should
always return true, but not actually acomplish anything intended.

Maybe this is the main source of heartache for people who try using HPSA
on Solaris?

That meshes with what I observe with 'lsof' on a HPSA-enabled httpd-1.3.23
with PHP-4.1.1 - both of which are linked against the thread libs.

Never tried it with dummies in the parent and real fcns linked into the
plug-in. I don't think I want to :)
