No. But newlib is used by RTEMS which does support pthreads.
RTEMS+newlib provides about 85% of POSIX 1003.1b.

Speaking from the RTEMS/newlib perspective, there are things in glibc

If you are moving from a UNIX to a embedded system, then you could
run into problems with fork/exec but that is not strictly
glibc versus newlib.
