Libtool assumes that everything is built with the same compiler. In the case of threads (and particularly on Solaris) it is important for the option to be preserved, or dependent programs/libraries might not work. This is because Solaris provides some stub pthread functions via weak symbols which do nothing (and return an error code) so that thread-safe libraries may be used by single-threaded programs.
