It looks like a FreeBSD linker bug, someone will have to investigate
exactly why the linker behaves that way. Depending on what it does, it's
possible that using the -nolibc flag would work around it.

But really the right fix is to build with Mingw. I don't know why that
doesn't work on FreeBSD, but fixing that should be the priority.
