AX_PTHREAD contains a use of the undocumented internal shell variable $as_echo.  Autoconf development trunk stopped setting this variable in 2013 (!)  As of, um, today, it's been restored, but now it triggers a -Wobsolete warning.

Please consider the attached patch, which changes it to use the documented public interface AS_ECHO() instead.
