Hi Roger,

Happy to receive suggestions that work for both MSVS and GNU toolchains. 
It must be possible (although I haven't found a way, but I'm probably 
overestimating the problem and just can't see the obvious). 
PTW32_STATIC_LIB is there during app builds because the headers 
(pthread.h, sched.h, semaphore.h) are used both in building the library 
and building apps but simply controls the export/import of symbols or not.
