You're using the default stack size in that sample code. It's probably
different on FreeBSD vs. Linux, which is why it works on the one but not
the other. Try using pthread_attr_setstacksize() to set a large stack
(try at least 128 KiB to be safe) for each thread and see if that helps.
Also, make sure you're linking with a thread safe libc.
