   It will not work.  Under FreeBSD, as I mentioned in a previous
post on this thread, there _is_ no libpthread; it's libc_r.  I
like Greg Stein's idea of checking whether gcc -pthread will
actually properly compile a threaded program, and then use that
if it works, or try other methods (such as attempting to link
with -lpthread if it exists).
