A lot depends on what else of the Classic API you are using.
If you are using features that map cleanly onto POSIX, then
I would be prone to rewrite in POSIX.  If not, then you have
some redesign work.  What parts of the Classic API are you
really using?

Definitely not.  The worst case is using the POSIX threads interface
and running the same code in both places.  This just might require
some rewrite.
