The libpq API is not really intended to be used by multiple threads
simultaneously (unless you make sure only one thread is submitting a
query and waiting for the result at any time).
The --enable-thread-safety flag is merely to ensure that the calls to
other libraries (Kerberos, etc) are handled in a thread-safe manner. It
doesn't have any effect on the thread safety of the libpq API itself.
