I am trying to get Xine, the dvd decoder and player, to work on my FreeBSD 
box,using XFree 4.0.3 But when I try to get the application, which builds 
fine on the machine, to run I get the following (From memory)

InitThreads failed, probably not using a thread safe xlib.

Anyone have any Idea what this problem relates too?
