>Organization:
TNF
>Environment:
amd64
>Description:
When starting up a Streaming Replication slave, the postmaster tries to dlopen libpqwalreceiver.so. This doesn't work because libpqwalreceiver is linked against libpthread.so, but the postmaster itself isn't.

>How-To-Repeat:
Try to set up a master-slave cluster with Streaming Replication.
Observe error message when starting slave:

FATAL:  could not load library "/usr/pkg/lib/postgresql/libpqwalreceiver.so": dlopen (/usr/pkg/lib/postgresql/libpqwalreceiver.so) failed: Cannot dlopen non-loadable /usr/lib/libpthread.so.1


>Fix:
A workaround is to patch the startup script in /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/pgsql to use LD_PRELOAD:

- command="/usr/pkg/bin/pg_ctl"
+ command="/usr/bin/env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libpthread.so /usr/pkg/bin/pg_ctl"

Maybe we need to link the main postgres binaries with libpthread.
