Neither the --with-linuxthreads or --with-pthread options are required
for GNU/linux systems:

The --with-linuxthreads option is meant for FreeBSD systems that
optionally had a port of the Linux threading system called
"linuxthreads", available as a separate and optional link threading
library, in addition to the default FreeBSD threading support.  That
option was NEVER meant to be used on a GNU/Linux system, and Common C++
automatically detects  and configures for glibc pthread support without
any special options.
