Simple answer is no and in the past there were many startup which came into this area and not so successful. You can get the assembly code from the binary but not the C (high level code) code as there may be infinite number of ways to reach at the same goal (In gdb you could use the command disass/m to see the assembly code)

I need to use microhttpd.a and pthread.a to build a cross-compiled program to be deployed on an arm-linux-gnueabihf device.

Where can I find instructions on how to do this? Or, is this simply a matter of downloading the source code and compiling (on a 64 bit UbuntuPC) to a library with my existing gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8 cross-compiler?

While I may be able to find microhttpd.a and pthread.a binaries for an arm-linux-gnueabihf device, they will likely have been built with a different version of gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf, which, I fear, could open up a can of worms.
