Looks like I made a big mistake. I fully apologize to every one of you for the trouble I've caused, I should've listened to the little voice in my head saying "don't commit that yet!".
I have some points to my defense however:
- in the changes summary, no API/ABI incompatibilities are highlighted.
- threads can be disabled with --disable-threads. I was sure that --disable-threads was passed as default, but now I that that's not the case, so this should be added and maybe we should add +threads as a default variant.

Again, sorry for the rookie mistake.
