make build environment quirkyness

Hello peoples,

Today I just realized that when I build jdk14 on my 4.8-stable box,
it uses -lc_r instead of -lpthread as mentioned in one of the makefiles
or documents somewhere... anyways, I added "export" to Defs.gmk and Defs-bsd.gmk

and rebuilt jdk14 and it then used the -lpthread library.

What should I look at to try to figure why this is happening?

Note: LimeWire (java) does seem to run a lot smoother now.
