Ah.. I'm using Solaris 8 so the LWP stuff just worked. I guess the
correct thing to do here is just use the pthread model. It's probably
safer to make pthread the default model on Solaris. I had it working
well with my 6-month-old version of wine, so it shouldn't be too
difficult to get it working with the current one.
You'll need to add a section to configure.ac to tell it to build
wine-pthread instead of wine-kthread:

and probably get rid of the checks for _lwp_create & _lwp_self:

I'll dig around next week and see if I can figure out why wine-pthread
seems to crash on my system. The stack trace looks strangely familiar...
