Fedora 6 has 3.3.6, but it looks like it is threadsafe.

If it is threadsafe, it links against libpthread, so that's one (nasty)
way of checking on linux at least:

# ldd /usr/lib/libsqlite3.so
        linux-gate.so.1 => (0x00110000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00a38000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x008c7000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)
