It seems that the support for threads is broken in FreeBSD. Maybe this
explains your problems. From GODI FAQ:

Why are POSIX threads disabled for FreeBSD?

Because they don't work well enough, i.e. there is a problem in
the threading implementation of FreeBSD.

For a description of the problem, see tickets 1820, 1821 of the O'Caml
bug database:;page=47;user=guest;page=48;user=guest
