Thanks Jeff. Thanks Brian.

I ran into this because I was specifically trying to configure with
"--disable-progress-threads --disable-mpi-threads" at which point I
figured, might as well turn off all threads so I added
"--without-threads" as well. But can't live without mpi_leave_pinned so
threads are back.
