WorksForMe, but I had to modify your command line to link with libc++abi 
(as per your subject).  My versions of libc++ and libc++abi is ToT 
(157626) (is there a branch for libc++ and libc++abi for 3.1?)

$ clang++ -v
Debian clang version 3.1-3eudoxos1 (branches/release_31) (based on LLVM 3.1)
Target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
Thread model: posix
$ clang++ -std=c++11 -stdlib=libc++ thread_join.cpp -o thread -pthread 
$ ./thread
