No, the ODB compiler does not use threads so building libcutl with
--disable-threads is actually an optimization.

The internal Boost subset that is part of libcutl uses threads by
default. So the fact that libcutl wasn't linking to -lpthreads
explicitly was actually a bug. Accidently, this fix triggered a
bug in RH ld that we have discussed earlier.
