I'd be very surprised if minix ever added threads. Heck, I'm surprised minix is under any sort of development at all.
----------------------------------------
Feature #8270: Ruby should build without thread support (aka minix)
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8270#change-38621

Author: eike.rb (Eike Dierks)
Status: Open
Priority: Low
Assignee: nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada)
Category: build
Target version: Next Major


I tried to ./configure ruby on Minix 3.2.1,
The configure failed, because minix does not yet implement threads.

I'd like to suggest that ruby should still build on platforms without threads.

AFAIK the language does not yet require thread support in itself,
but maybe the new GC does require it.
So we might want to look up,
where the dependencies on threading really are.
