For what it's worth, we have the gnu ld during build, but a different rtld.

In any case, Andy Fawcett got a clean build, which pointed me back at 
something local, and rebuilding to get a bt turns up that this seems to be a 
nice combination of threads and NVidia binary drivers (well, the libGL from 

BT's (identical) from both kde-config and kdewidgets here:

This is not the first time that combo has been a really big problem for Qt on 
FreeBSD, and it's certainly not within the scope of KDE to fix it.    
Previously we had a big recommendation to not install Qt with OpenGL support 
on FreeBSD, I think we might be looking at restoring that.

I think turning off --as-needed for non-linux systems would be premature, but 
since we can't fix whatever's wrong, being able to turn it off if required is 
a pretty good compromise.
