It's not too bad. pthreads-win32 is fairly complete and working.
The mentioned functions are missing because Windows lacks the concept of
signals altogether.

As there are no signals on Win32, I *think* it is okay to just "ifndef
MINGW" the code.

Regarding the undefined "pipe()":
the easiest thing to do would be to define pipe() in the following way:

    #include <fcntl.h>
    #define pipe(f) _pipe(f, 1000, _O_BINARY)

_pipe() takes two additional parameters: size in bytes and file mode.
Note that these pipes are blocking.
