I've just made a quick test on my SuSE 9.1 Linux and it seems to be the
case that an explicit "-lpthread" is not necessary anymore, even for
programs using pthread calls. Strange, but handy. :-) Could you try if
things work for you without adding "pthread" to extra_libraries?
Another way would be using some kind of autoconf/shell magic to test
for the linker script and install a link to /lib/libpthread.so.0 with
the name "myownpthread.so" to the installation directory of your package
and add "myonwpthread" to extra_libraries. Ugly...
