Incorrect prototypes for some pthread functions

Greetings. Just joined the list, and second time I am posting. Overall I
am looking into pthread support. Now on to the question.
I have found that some of the prototypes for the pthreads functions appear
to be incorrect. For example, pthread_kill is prototyped as:
int pthread_kill( pthread_t * thread, int sig );
and it seems that it should be:
int pthread_kill( pthread_t thread, int sig );
Of course, this probably still works, but causes a compilation warning.
There are several other cases of where this occurs. Any reason for this. I
am referring to the UNIX 98 spec as a reference. Is there something else to
which this has been implemented?
If these are really incorrect, I will submit a patch.
