Tom Tromey - May 29, 2019, 9:29 p.m.
This adds a configure check for std::thread.  This is needed because
std::thread is not available in mingw.

gdb/ChangeLog
2019-05-29  Tom Tromey  <tom@tromey.com>

	* acinclude.m4: Include ax_pthread.m4.
	* Makefile.in (PTHREAD_CFLAGS, PTHREAD_LIBS): New variables.
	(INTERNAL_CFLAGS_BASE): Use PTHREAD_CFLAGS.
	(CLIBS): Use PTHREAD_LIBS.
	(aclocal_m4_deps): Add ax_pthread.m4.
	* config.in, configure: Rebuild.
	* common/common.m4 (GDB_AC_COMMON): Check for std::thread.

2019-05-29  Tom Tromey  <tom@tromey.com>

	* acinclude.m4: Include ax_pthread.m4.
	* config.in, configure: Rebuild.

AFAICT, the patch actually does two things:

- Add autoconf bits (ax_pthread.m4) to make sure we build with the
  right -pthread, -pthreads, -lpthread, -lpthreads, or whatever the
  right spelling is on the host to pull in the pthreads library.

- Adds a configure check for std::thread, since it is not available
  on some platforms, at least out of the box.  I think mingw-w64
  (but not mingw.org) supports std::thread OOTB nowadays.  I'd guess
  that DJGPP doesn't support it either, at least OOTB.  Googling around
  seems to confirm that.

Right?

It'll be good to extend the commit log in that direction, IMO.

Is there reason to prefer sinclude over m4_include?  I never
got why we use sinclude so frequently, given it doesn't error
out if the file doesn't exist.

Maybe mention DJGPP too.

I think you meant save_CXXFLAGS here.

Otherwise looks fine to me.

Thanks,
