I don't think that's accurate. The x86_64-mingw64 cross compiler
package set includes a win32-pthreads package, including pthread.h.
It's necessary for gcc's OMP support via libgomp.
That's why the OP was able to find one copy of pthread.h in
C:\cygwin\usr\x86_64-w64-mingw32\sys-root\mingw\include. The real
question is why the (cross)compiler couldn't locate it; given the whole
/mingw prefix and sysroot support, it really should be able to.
