The GC does not implement pthread_create (or any other thread primitive);
it merely wraps the one provided by the environment, IF the environment
provides one.

If you have a pthreads library for Win32, such as if you use Cygwin-GCC,
you should be able to define GC_WIN32_PTHREADS and get it. Then,
however, you don't get a CreateThread wrapper.
