+# SYNOPSIS
+#
+# AX_PTHREAD([ACTION-IF-FOUND[, ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND]])
+#
+# DESCRIPTION
+#
+# This macro figures out how to build C programs using POSIX threads. It
+# sets the PTHREAD_LIBS output variable to the threads library and linker
+# flags, and the PTHREAD_CFLAGS output variable to any special C compiler
+# flags that are needed. (The user can also force certain compiler
+# flags/libs to be tested by setting these environment variables.)
+#
+# Also sets PTHREAD_CC to any special C compiler that is needed for
+# multi-threaded programs (defaults to the value of CC otherwise). (This
+# is necessary on AIX to use the special cc_r compiler alias.)
+#
+# NOTE: You are assumed to not only compile your program with these flags,
+# but also link it with them as well. e.g. you should link with
+# $PTHREAD_CC $CFLAGS $PTHREAD_CFLAGS $LDFLAGS ... $PTHREAD_LIBS $LIBS
+#
+# If you are only building threads programs, you may wish to use these
+# variables in your default LIBS, CFLAGS, and CC:
+#
+# LIBS="$PTHREAD_LIBS $LIBS"
+# CFLAGS="$CFLAGS $PTHREAD_CFLAGS"
+# CC="$PTHREAD_CC"
+#
+# In addition, if the PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE thread-attribute constant
+# has a nonstandard name, defines PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE to that name
+# (e.g. PTHREAD_CREATE_UNDETACHED on AIX).
+#
+# Also HAVE_PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT is defined if pthread is found and the
+# PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT symbol is defined when compiling with
+# PTHREAD_CFLAGS.
+#
+# ACTION-IF-FOUND is a list of shell commands to run if a threads library
+# is found, and ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND is a list of commands to run it if it
+# is not found. If ACTION-IF-FOUND is not specified, the default action
+# will define HAVE_PTHREAD.
+#
+# Please let the authors know if this macro fails on any platform, or if
+# you have any other suggestions or comments. This macro was based on work
+# by SGJ on autoconf scripts for FFTW (http://www.fftw.org/) (with help
+# from M. Frigo), as well as ac_pthread and hb_pthread macros posted by
+# Alejandro Forero Cuervo to the autoconf macro repository. We are also
+# grateful for the helpful feedback of numerous users.
