I recently had a similar issue when doing some work for a client - even 
after compiling a non-threaded Perl to replace the system perl, I still 
received the 'can't run with threads' message when trying to start the 
interchange daemon. Somehow the Perl Config module was getting the wrong 
info about the way Perl was built on the system, generating a false 
positive on the threads test. My answer was to create a startup script for 
interchange which set the environment variable MINIVEND_FORCE_THREADS to 
true. That allowed the daemon to start in any case.
