Compile and link for multithreaded code.
This option passes -D_REENTRANT to the preprocessor and passes -lthread in the correct order to ld.
The -mt option is required if the application or libraries are multithreaded.
To ensure proper library linking order, you must use this option, rather than -lthread, to link with libthread.
If you are using POSIX threads, you must link with the options -mt -lpthread. The -mt option is necessary because libC and libCrun need libthread for a multithreaded application.
Modules that are compiled with -mt must also be linked with -mt. For a complete list of compiler options that must be specified at both compile time and at link time, see A.1.2 Compile-Time and Link-Time Options.
If you compile one translation unit with -mt, compile all units of the program with -mt.
