Right, in general, you can't build with PTHREAD_LIBS set to anything
other than default (-lc_r).  There are patches in the PR system to
make KDE build cleanly when PTHREAD_LIBS is set to -lkse, but even
when applied, there are other ports that will still have problems.

In short, unless you know what you are doing or want to help
make ports honor PTHREAD_LIBS, do not touch PTHREAD_LIBS.
