If you have a look at the INSTALL file in the root of the source tree, you
will find the following:

            * If you are building on FreeBSD, be aware that threads will
              be disabled and the prefork MPM will be used by default,
              as threads do not work well with Apache on FreeBSD.  If
              you wish to try a threaded Apache on FreeBSD anyway, use
              "./configure --enable-threads".

If you want a stable server on earlier versions of FreeBSD, you need to use
the prefork MPM.
