In Mandriva we actually had threading support for a while and then I was
specifically asked to disable it as it causes a substantial problem with
Expect:

https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=42596

as per the rather substantial discussion both in that report and in the
associated upstream conversation:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.tcl/browse_thread/thread/805731c32f53c4b7

it was determined that building with threading really doesn't help
anything much. So, as mentioned in that bug, I disabled threading in the
MDV build.

Why did want you want to have threading enabled?
