My intention with this was the (original) POSIX thread definition, that 
(IIRC) does not require or rely on an external OS that (besides 
multitasking multiple applications) helps with implementing 
multithreading within an application.

Here the old style ("light weight" / "internal" multi-thread enabled) 
pthread lib might help. Supposedly same does not need to be "installed" 
but could be statically linked to.

(But don't ask me where such a beast can be found...)

Supposedly same only comes in 32 Bit flavor, thus a DOS extender or GO32 
will be necessary to run such programs.
