I had this problem under IRIX 6.2, but not under IRIX 6.5, when linking
with -lpthread.  I removed -lpthread from the link under 6.2 and it
actually completed the test.  Something in the pthread library was causing
problems with wait3().

You could try that.  Look at the compile line in entirety and do it
manually, excluding the -lpthread, and see what happens.
