You already know the correct fix to this scenario. Patch ld to be able
to act like gcc with -mno-cygwin. Please don't go look for solutions
that are really just workarounds.

I will not support cygwin pthread functions linked statically. I should
have said that before. Those functions both depend on cygwin and are
depended on by cygwin.

Fix the configure script so that it checks for Win32 availability - and
thus win32 thread functions - before pthreads.
