Libtool assumes that everything is built with the same compiler.

But that's a limitation.  To work better, those extra flags could be
stored as compiler-independently as possible, and converted back to
per-compiler spelling at use time (i.e., at the time something else
links against this library).  I'm not sure how practicable that is
though, it would essentially require to put much logic of ACX_PTHREAD
into the libtool script.  Ugh.

ACX_PTHREAD is really not very good at all so relying on it would be very bad. Just because it happens to (usually) work does not make it good.
