You've probably got NO_PROFILE defined in /etc/make.conf, triggering a
bug in the package list.

That depend line hasn't been updated since GCC 4 was imported, and still
assumes that the linuxthreads library was compiled with GCC 3.

The audio/gogo port lacks a maintainer.

The linuxthreads port is mostly a bandaid for threading on FreeBSD 4.  The
native thread libraries should be used on newer FreeBSD versions.

Only minor changes are needed to make the audio/gogo port compile with native
