[Bf-committers] MinGW Build Questions

I just setup so I can build with MinGW and I've run into some things I
think are strange.  I hope you guys don't mind me asking here if it
turns out they aren't so strange :-)

It seems that the lib/mingw/pthread directory only contains a lib
directory but not an include directory.  The preprocessor keeps
warning me that lib/mingw/pthread/include does not exist.  However it
seems to be finding a pthread.h somewhere and I assume it is in

It seems to me that either it should use the lib and header from mingw
or the one that comes with Blender but not both.

I modified CMakeLists.txt to make sure it uses the library and header
distributed with mingw and it seems to build fine (I couldn't do it
the other way since there is no header to be found in the mingw
library directory).

I have other questions, but I'll just start off with that one.
