Try doing what I describe in this Bugzilla report and seeing if it fixes
the problem for other users.  I was not able to get things going using
either libpthread or libc_r (but note that it's impossible to just use
libmap.conf to override these on a per-binary basis when the libraries
it's linked to link to them explicitly, so I had to do it at the
global context).

See: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=247204>
