Did you compile from source or install a binary from a packet manager?
Does it say multi-thread support in: Help->About->Build Info ?

All I know is that I installed gnubg from the repository (GNU
Backgammon 1.06.002) and the rollouts speed seemed terrible.

Do I need to do something in the GUI to enable multi-threading? (and I
hope that by multi-threading we are talking about multi-core, not just
threading, which does not help)
