No, as the pthread functions use cygwin calls that will still link to
cygwin. If you wnat a mingw pthread library see the pthread-win32

This _might_ do it. Still it requires breaking out the pthread
functions, for little benefit and greater overhead. Why not add the
win32-pthread functions somewhere and add that to the -mno-cygwin specs?
