What version of libtool are you using? It is my understanding that current libtool already captures these options in the .la file.

You should also keep in mind that if one component of an application is built to use/support threads, that it is wise to build the entire application the same way. This is because for non-thread-safe code, errno is usually a simple global variable, while for thread-safe code, errno is thread-specific data. There may also be differences in the handling of stdio streams (locking vs non-locking). If the application is built inconsistently, then its behavior may be inconsistent.

So, you should have been using -pthread already. :-)
