Hi! I upgraded the FreeBSD gnokii port in the ports collection to
0.5.10, while doing these I noticed the following patch was needed:

--- config/       Sat Feb 14 16:37:52 2004

+         *-*-openbsd*)
            # Do not include libc_r directly, use -pthread flag.

For the reasons I wrote in the patch itself.

Considering the the most raccommended and only supported(read, almost
mandatory :) way to installa software in freebsd is the ports collection
I think this should be included in the distribution.

Please note that the only version of freebsd needing explicit -lc_r is
5.2-RELEASE and -current for a short time span around the release date
of 5.2.

Thanks! Hope this patch is appreciated :)
