commit e6fde073449897f124965c87c3c73d1a35dda8c5
Author: Ken Raffenetti <raffenet at mcs.anl.gov>
Date:   Wed Sep 18 09:31:04 2013 -0500

    Test for PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED attribute
    FreeBSD does not support this attribute. Including this runtime
    test ensures nemesis will not override the allocate_shm function
    pointer unless it is supported. Fixes #1926
