MT is multi-threaded (requires kernel 2.0, or at least 1.3.high).  Non-MT
is non-multithreaded, which should run on 1.2 and possibly even older
Linux kernels.

Note that the Linux versions are statically linked ELF binaries, so your
libc.so.[56] version is not important.

I suspect it's to allow for the selection of a range when generating
random blocks...?
