Because -pthread allows selection of one specific threadling library,
not multiple.  It is also unnecessary since the library is specified
as a link option, not a compiler option.  In the future, -pthread
will be a NOOP, but it suits us now to have it cause an error so
that ports that don't honor PTHREAD_LIBS can be found and fixed.
