Unfortunately, it is not that simple...
First, pthread.h includes windows.h and winsock.h for some defines.
Second, the Windows headers do not recognize _POSIX_SOURCE, but they do
recognize _POSIX_ , but that just fixes some things like file IO and it does not
block non POSIX functions.
You can either closely look at the source code line by line looking for non
POSIX functions, or take your source code over to a Linux, Solaris, or other
POSIX system and 'try' to compile it :) That is how I am porting the GLTrace DLL
from Windows to Linux/Solaris.
