This error seems to be part of the threading issue or was brought to light by

First I'm running current as of yesterday, while doing a portupgrade -Rrua
during the rebuild of portupgrade.  I tried to get past it by recompiling
qmake, etc. with no luck so I added a /etc/libmap.conf based on the man page,
recompiled everything based other's information on the mailling list.  I even
blew away my ports tree, distfiles, etc and resuped all.  Everything is/was
working except portupgrade/ruby.  When I start portupgrade or friends, I get
the above malloc message and signal 6 from ruby.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.  I'm blocked.
