POSIX threads documentation

I'm looking for documentation on the non-portable aspects of the POSIX
threads implementation, but which are essential for library writers.
(Basically, I want to make my library thread-safe, without forcing
client code to link with -lpthread and the associated performance
penalty.)  In particular, I need to check if certain symbols which are
currently provided without -lpthread are guaranteed to be available to
non-threaded programs in the future.

Is there such a documentation available somewhere?
