As I recall, the Forte compiler requires an explicit -mt switch when
you are building multithreaded code (that is if your compiler was

First, try to build (with -mt switch) a simple multithreaded program
using basic pthreads, e.g. one of the examples from
If this works, than you have threading.
You didn't mention which Forte you are using; I believe only 6.X
versions have enough template support and standard complience to
