I can think of a few other perhaps simpler alternatives.

1) Move the pthread functions from libcygwin.a to a separate library
libpthread.a instead of libpthread.a being a symlink to libcygwin.a.
would fix this particular configure problem I think. This already
works this way I found for libpng.a and libjpeg.a.

2) Put some cygwin specific libraries as libpthread.a in /usr/cygwin/lib
and add /usr/cygwin/lib to the specs?
