Turns out you can compile libx264 and specify to use "windows threads"
(as well as ffmpeg).  With libvpx you still need it though (and
something like the above did work).
Anyway, the latest zeranoe builds have switched temporarily to using
"just windows threads" until we can figure out what's wrong with
pthreads (as a work around).
