This change unfortunately didn't quite work.

In OS X 10.11.5 (at least, but got also failure reports from other versions), the change meant that the mutex 
init was skipped, which meant that the further mutex use panicked  (correctly) if the Perl was built with threads.  So what exactly was the intent of the change?

You said "resulting in build errors on Darwin versions which include a native clock_gettime"?  What are these platforms?  Non-Apple Darwin builds?  That is fine, but the change needs to be something different.
