Ah, thats the part I was missing and can now reproduce.  Some of that double
negative logic in acinclude.m4 was confusing me and I thought my test on
Darwin would have fully tested it.

I can have a fix ASAP although I guess I'll need to hold off on submitting
until git is ready.

BTW, temporary work around  for those that need it: ./configure
--disable-fork-process LDFLAGS=-lpthread
