I looked into this; it is trying to use pthread_t (a pointer) as the
key for a table that's indexed by int. Changing the index type
(PINDEX, defined in include/ptlib/unix/ptlib/contain.h) to long
might make it run, but would have a broad effect on the rest of the
package and, judging by the overall code quality, probably break it.
Updating the package to the latest version might help, but I don't
have the wherewithal to do this myself.
