It's possible the sysconf call is buggy with threads.  I'd guess your
little C program isn't multithreaded.

Since sysconf reads /proc, it'll be sensitive to kernel version too.
Interestingly, GC_get_nprocs avoids it:

/* Return the number of processors, or i<= 0 if it can't be determined. */
int GC_get_nprocs()
    /* Should be "return sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN);" but that   */
    /* appears to be buggy in many cases.               */
    /* We look for lines "cpu<n>" in /proc/stat.            */
