It looks like the problem is incompatibilities between the different
versions of gcc included in those distributions.  For example, I think
the details of pthread implementation vary, and this is why you're
seeing errors related to pthread compilation.

Mixing versions of gcc is not supported, even though it sometimes

I think you need to install the appropriate compilers onto lune.
