No. cthreads are specific to mach (hence it looks in mach/cthreads.h).

I don't think so. But maybe you can tell configure to look first in
mach/cthreads.h, and if that fails, without mach.

That would be bad, because it would only compile on your machine (unless we
would change the Hurd and gnumach source, which would be wrong, because on
the Hurd cthreads.h is provided by the Hurd package, and not by gnumach.)
