Sorry about the confusion, yes I was referring to threads.h. If that
is purely a name conflict beween AIX and Windows, it might be o.k. to
leave the _AIX flag in place (can you think of another name - _AIX will
only work for GCC not the native xlc from IBM).

I'd be happy with another name for the ifdef flag. Actually, <sys/time.h>
should have
the conventional multiple use protection on all platforms that we care
about, so why
not have both includes? It does work on AIX as far as I can see.    :-)
