both branches (main & hotfix) pass configure (without LIBS="...") here's 
what relevant configure output looks like:

checking for the pthreads library -lpthreads... no
checking whether pthreads work without any flags... no
checking whether pthreads work with -Kthread... no
checking whether pthreads work with -kthread... no
checking for the pthreads library -llthread... no
checking whether pthreads work with -pthread... yes
checking for joinable pthread attribute... PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE
checking if more special flags are required for pthreads... no
checking for boostlib >= 1.38... yes
checking whether the Boost::Thread library is available... yes
checking whether the boost thread library is usable... yes
checking for sin in -lmkl... no
checking for sin in -lm... yes

and they both have problems during make starting here (there's more):
../vfe/libvfe.a(vfesession.o): In function 
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xcd2): undefined reference to 
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xce7): undefined reference to 
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xcfb): undefined reference to 

when we get this sorted out, what are the chances of leaving the hotfix 
branch for this kind of testing ... I'd like to add it to buildbot
