Isn't that funny ... I just yesterday ran into the same problem with 
7.4.2 on Solaris.

One other problem I am looking into (and why I tried to compile with 
thread safety in the first place) is that this somehow did not turn on 
-D_REENTRANT in the CFLAGS for libpq. And that leads to libpq not using 
the threadsafe definition of errno, leading to serious communication 
trouble in the end (pqReadData() failing with ENOENT while the real 
error is a harmless EAGAIN from a nonblocking recv()).
