RE: Newbie trying to build statically linkable lib.

Are you using Visual Studio 2005?  I built a project in that, by 
adding pthread.c and pthread.h to a project.  Then put "." in 
the additional includes path.

There are additional things you have to do to link statically.  
It has been so long that I forgot what they are.  I put them 
in my constructors and destructors, but I don't know if you 
are programming in C or C++.
