If that's the case, we could probably link ACE to a static version of the pthread library, and everything would just work.

I didn't dig in it a lot yet, but I think the main problem is that 
winelib's pthread emulation doesn't implement pthread_cond_*() calls 
(e.g. pthread_cond_wait) - I will know more soon. Reason why we wanted 
to use pthreads is that ACE is tested with native pthreads.
