No, the function does it on its own, IIRC. Of course you have to define the
stack when you try to implement the function on your own. See mintlib

tfork() isn't a system function. tfork() is a MiNTLib function that uses
system functions like Pexec() and Mshrink() to perform. As long as MagiC
implements these, it is compatible.
