/usr/lib/libpthread.so is usually a linker script, i.e. a small text file with 
instructions for the linker, rather than an ELF shared object.  It looks like 
the dynamic linker is choking on it in your case, I don't know why.  This is 
really out of our hands; we just pass the filename of the .so to the system 
linker via dlopen(), so perhaps your version of ld.so can't handle linker scripts?
