Why would it be an "issue"? gcc -pthread and libpthread linking is
documented pretty much everywhere on the web. There isn't anything
broken about it, it's how it's done on older FreeBSD.
Note that all of this has significantly changed in later FreeBSD
versions, and that the 5.x series was deprecated a very long time ago.
