Yes, of course.

And that is certainly an option although a highly intrusive one which for many 
projects is not necessary. 

I mean we have many different GNU toolchain projects that work on many 
different platforms from a single codebase.
Libtool makes adjustments for other types of platforms.  And this is just 
another type of platform adjustment.

If there were many many changes necessary then porting makes sense.   But when 
it just involves one library, pthread,
then my hope is that the tools could make that adjustment.
