gcc -mno-cygwin creates cygwin executables!

 I must say I'm baffled by this whole thread (NPI)
Why are you using such a lame program.
 Just add
  #include <pthread.h>
to zz.c and everything should work as intended, no?
 If you don't do that it seems you get what you deserve.
Am I missing something?

To sum up this thread:

consider the following program:

main () {

gcc -mno-cygwin -o zz.exe zz.c -lpthread will compile and build.
A cygcheck on zz.exe reveals that libcygwin.a is linked in. The
problem with this is that a configure script with CC='gcc -mno-cygwin'
will incorrectly find that libpthread.a is available with
AC_SEARCH_LIBS(pthread_create, -lpthread)
