Pthreads support was present before. It's just a little more substantial
now. Your makefiles are broken if they assume that libpthreads.a is the
library name. On different platforms I have seen
nothing (as cygwin does - libc provides pthread support)
I suggest you fix your makefiles. (Hint: autoconf is a wonderful tool).

If they are "strictly windows" you might want to look at using mingw to
build them instead.
