configure: detect whether -lpthreads is necessary for pthreads

Some platforms have pthreads support available without linking against
libpthread (and indeed don't even offer a libpthread to link against).
One example of this is Android's bionic library. Teach the RTS about
this case.

Test Plan: Validate while cross-compiling targetting Android on aarch64
