Hum, could we instead get a solution that could potentially be
upstreamed? Like using AC_CACHE_CHECK(), or something like that.

Also, any reason to patch configure directly? We normally don't do
that, and always prefer to patch configure.{in,ac}.

That being said, if you don't care about no-thread support in unixodbc,
I would personally be fine if you decided to add 'depends on
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_THREADS' in Config.in.

Thanks,

Thomas
