It needs pthreads.  FreeBSD provides this in the reentrant c library.

For FreeBSD, you should remove -lpthread from LIBS and add -pthread to
CFLAGS.  I believe this should be the only change required.

I will fix FreeBSD building in the next few days (or at least this is my
intention) as well as Win32 building.  

Once this is done, I'm planning an alpha1 release of icecast 2.0 to give
people something to concretely test, etc.
