this is how the spec file defines the compilation ...

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threads=pthreads
make LIBS=-ldl

Compiling libgc this way results in a segfault. I've tried all
combinations for the three parameters (prefix, threads and -ldl) and
found out that leaving out the threads parameter results in a working
solution (that is ... mono runs if you don't add anything else, probably
due to the missing thread support it segfaults somewhere internally)

Now I'm a bit stuck here ... I presume the library should be
thread-enabled ... one of the main reasons why I had to rebuild the
package a few weeks ago to enable thread support.

Any feedback from someone a bit more knowledgable in this area.
I'll look into the problem again tonight (I'm way beyond my normal
lunchbreak already right now:) )
