I apologize for making this change so quickly without looking at
AST_EXT_TOOL_CHECK() closer.  But yes, it was missing "gthread".  After I
noticed that it wasn't working, I just copied the code that did work from 1.4.

I agree that it makes sense to expand the macro and I will do so tomorrow.

It actually is used, though.  The results are used to compile pbx_gtkconsole.
