[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] pthread detection on mingw + static pthread

I haven't found out yet. It's not the usual stdcall vs. cdecl issue that

My patch moves the code away from ffmpeg.c into pthreads.c. It's more
related to what the code actually does, and keeps ffmpeg.c cleaner.

Already asked. I got an off-list reply from Ross Johnson, so I asked
him to bring it back to the list.

I can think of many better ways...

But you love wasting your time flaming these e-mails...
