I just managed to do the right linking with pthread - but for an 
external and not for main pd ...

for pthread you simply have to link against pthreadGC.dll
(with MSVC you link against pthreadVC.dll - which means Visual C - so if 
you don't have pthreadGC.dll you also have to install this dll, because 
it's not included in the pd bin folder ... pthead.h is included in the 
src directory of the pd windows installation ...)

BTW: could it be a problem, if you compile pd with MSVC (= link against 
pthreadVC.dll) and an threaded external with MinGW (link against 
pthreadGC.dll) ?
I only tried to also link the external in MinGW against pthreadVC.dll, 
but got a crash - so I think it should be okay ... ?
