That's not quite correct. You need to add -lpthread in Project
Menu->Project Options (F7) -> Linker Options -> additional libraries

If the library resides in a path not know to ld (i.e. not listed in
/etc/ld.so.conf), then you need to add that path in Project
Menu->Project Options (F7) -> Compiler Options -> Linker Flags using:

-L/path/to/the/library/i/need
