Yes, these calls to the posix threads support are ifdefed out in the non  MT 
safe libesmtp.

OpenSSL provides an API to register callback functions for mutex 
locking/unlocking.  THe MT safe version of libESMTP provides the callbacks.  I 
don't know if the non MT safe OpenSSL stubs these out or not.  Assuming stubs 
are not provided you'd have an MT safe openssl.

I don't know what the MT issues are with OpenSSL.  Does anyone know if its 
necessary to explicitly protext some OpenSSL APIs with mutexes?
