[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Android Support [2/4]

This is a series of patches to add support to Mono for building against
the Android NDK [0].  Android runs the Linux kernel, but moves many
things around compared to a "normal" desktop Linux distro.

These patches are based against the mono-2-6 branch.

This second patch patches libgc so that it will properly build and link
under Android.  In particular, note that Android includes pthread_*()
functions within libc, not libpthread, thus the added configure check.

	* include/private/gcconfig.h: Android platforms are built atop Linux,
	  don't use glibc, and uses `environ` instead of `__environ`.
	* configure.in: Use AC_CHECK_LIB() to check for pthread instead of
	  just blindly linking to -lpthread, as Android includes pthread
	  support within libc and doesn't provide a separate libpthread.
