WinCE doesn't support 'normal' filesystem access either.  Most File IO 
is isolated to the FileMgr class and for WinCE, we supply the other 
methods needed to use the OS's custom calls.  We could use this as a 
model and do the same for NaCl.

To my knowledge, we don't use pthread_* in our code.  Not sure where 
this thing is coming from.

Thanks for the effort!
