+Summary: FreeBSD  needs -pthread linker directive, not lib ref
+The configure options for FreeBSD thread library are currently set to -lthr.
+This is incorrect, and needs to be changed to the -pthread, which is a
+linker directive, and not a specific library reference, which will tell the
+FreeBSD linker to use the currently-selected thread library.
+This development is rather new for FreeBSD, and I was not aware of it until
+it was pointed out to me.   The reference is here:
+Specifically, note the comment:
+Change the default value of PTHREAD_LIBS to -pthread for 5.x and
+beyond.  This avoids linking shared libraries with the thread library,
+which causes problems when trying to change from one thread library to
+another.  Instead all binaries that link to a library that uses
+threads must themselves respect PTHREAD_LIBS.
+I will attach a patch.  This is critical for an out-of-the-box FreeBSD. 
+FreeBSD is currently linking against two thread libraries, and is broken.
+Thanks, and regrets for any confusion this may have caused.
