(just butting in) I bet the answer is "yes" becuase when you build
-Dusethreads, the #ifdef's in the libperl code cause new slots to be
added to some structs, and thus the resulting libperl is not binary
compatible with one built without -Dusethreads.

As any limb well and duly exercised, grows stronger,
the nerves of the body are corroborated thereby. --I. Watts.  .''`.
