that was a good guess, i found a stray "b" in the project file.
but i didn't do it.
i downloaded everything again from the git.
it's in the win-vs2008 gem.vcproj

AdditionalDependencies="pd.lib opengl32.lib glu32.lib b freetype235mt_D.lib
FTGL.lib ws2_32.lib pthreadVC.lib"

so, taking this out (and the freetype & FTGL libs) it got again stuck with
a missing

it was already very hard to find the needed pthread.h.
(i did clean up my disc's and then it was gone).
it's not in the 'regular' gits of pd-van or pd-ext.
i only found something following a download advise for the Pd/sources in
the page for building Pd on Windows .

but no pthreadVC.lib or pthread.lib.

googling didn't bring me useful wisdom here.

where to get, buy, borrow, steal it?
