I believe this is an overgeneralization in question. Thread
implementations in BSD vary from "distribution to distribution" (Free,
Net, Open), and may also vary from release to release.

For example, one of them recently dropped the libc_r library.

Try compiling with the -mt option, unless this is already done; it
appears that this causes the compiler to define things that are
otherwise not defined.
