I am building with VS 2008 and the compiler (cl) and the standard libraries that goes with
it, including the windows thread library. I have noted that ompi_info requires either Posix
or Solaris threads to report that open-mpi has thread support. Do I need to change the
thread library and/or do I need another compiler?

Not all Windows compilers work well enough with all threading models
that you could expect satisfactory results; in particular, the compilers
and thread libraries you use on linux may not be adequate for Windows
