No.  You'd have to either disable threading at all (if supported) or convert
to cthreads.  But as we *want* to support pthreads (strongly!), it would be
better to through in your efforts to help the already existing efforts in
implementing pthreads on the Hurd, so that no special handling is required
at all.  [Insert a pointer to the existing pthreads efforts here, which I
don't have.  hurd.sf.net?]
