This implies the knowledge of many facts which are possibly unknown to
the user (OK libavsomething was not compiled with this pthreads stuff,
and then??). Maybe more clear:

"'overrun_nonfatal' option was set but it is not supported on this build (pthread support is required)\n");

This is still not yet completely clear (and assumes the advanced
notion of "build" on the user), but documentation (see other patch)
should clarify this point.
