What version of libgc is installed?  Was it built with POSIX thread
support?  On my GNU/Linux system, libgc's configure script output the
following lines:

  checking for thread model used by GCC... posix
  checking for pthread_self in -lpthread... yes

Do you see anything like that in your libgc configure output?

Hmm, I'm not sure what's happening here.  I wonder if it's related to
the locale bug (see below).

This is a known bug, fixed in 5de0053178b4acc793ae62838175e5f3ab56c603.
The fix will be in Guile 2.0.6.

To work around this problem, use only locale identifiers with an
explicit character set, such as "ja_JP.eucJP".  The bug only affects
locale identifiers without the character set suffix.
