if its the latest version of SDL (v1.12.15) then I am pretty sure that
thread support was removed to m68k-atari-mint this year simply because
"proper threading" was not implimented. SDL dev list archive have a
patch to that effect (sry no exact link)

Nokturnls' SDL work for Falcon may provide for threads tho.

BTW the patch was minimal so adding it back should not be an issue.
SDL is after all designed to thread on platforms that do not have
"real" threads
