Ah, looking deeper into configure script and resulting config.h from both cases
reveals the actual differences, so you are correct. Unfortunately, there is no
way to specify --atomic=intel (or any other one) and it does the automatic
guesswork selecting one or another. And if libatomic-ops is installed, there
is no way to override it... So, looks like fixing libatomic-ops is the right
way. I'll wait for Henning to update the recipe for libatomics-ops, otherwise
I can submit a patch to define AO_REQUIRE_CAS emulation for the temporary
