I've been trying to define and build openclonk, but I keep getting build
failures because pthreads are missing.

tl;dr: how to make pthreads work with cmake-build-system for linking...

I have grepped the guix sources for pthreads but I can't seem to find it
explicitly declared used. And AFAIK pthreads is part of gcc, stdc or glib or
something; I seem to remember only needing to tack on the -lpthreads flag on
the compiler when I was playing with it, no extra packages.

So I'm a bit at a loss. Maybe this is a quirk with cmake or how openclonk
uses cmake; though it seems they are doing the necessary steps in their

The definition I'm working on can be found at the following link. I apologize
in advance for the cluttered file - it's basically my playroom (I have some
work in front of me to declutter and send patches with the definitions that
work from here - in the future).

The relevant errors I get here are:
