No, there are no "true" threads in MiNT, AFAIK.

I've never used it, so I don't know how does it operate. Perhaps someone
else would answer this.

Pfork() creates a child process which runs concurrently with the parent and
shares the TEXT segment with the parent, while the BSS/DATA segments are
separate. tfork() creates a child process which runs concurrently with the
parent and shares all the memory with the parent.
