I think it may be the other way round.  2.24.8 adds -lgthread and
that's just about the newest version (upgrading to 2.24.10 now but
I don't expect it to change).  I presume it's thus actually older
versions that don't add it as the core didn't need it before.

This looks ok for HEAD.  Are you asking to backport it to the branches (2.0 and 2.1)?
