I'm digging into it right now. The problem seems to be that Perl outputs
-lpthread as a required LDFLAG, but gcc needs -pthread (with no "l"), or
else it fails linking to the symbol pthread_setspecific.

Since the SAFE_EMBED_PERL configure test then fails to compile,
MIMEDefang thinks it can't do a reread on this platform.
