I can't test it right now.. I can test it tomorrow when I downgrade GNOME  
2.9.x to 2.8.x by via package.

So, you mean the 'RUBY_CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--with-libc_r=yes' cause the  
coredump on FreeBSD 4.x? If no, then how about use it by default and  
remove the _r voodoo, while we are there enable -pthread only on FreeBSD  

I still have to admit that I don't know ruby VS FreeBSD 4.x that well.
