just stumbled over this thread from 2005:

however even back then it was decided that libc_r should stay for a while, but
not forever.

...also a few people suggested moving it to ports, but for some reason that
didn't happen. so i doubt that the removal of libc_r is a big loss to the
majority of developers. ;)
