You must be doing something "horribly wrong". monit compiles and work
on FreeBSD last I checked. (That is the released 2.5 version)

If I'm not mistaken the pthread support on FreeBSD is provided via the
libc or a threaded version of it. You won't find a on
FreeBSD, instead check out libc_r (the threaded version of libc). To
activate thread support we use the following switch in the Makefile:
-pthread. I compiled and tested on sourceforge's FreeBSD without any
problems (it was not a very extensive test though).
