I have bumped PORTREVISION, be sure to remove your old linuxdcpp and let  
new linuxdcpp.shar to create a new one.

Done, fixed and enable. Few people in #freebsd-gnome (IRC) have helped me  
until jylefort has helped me in the final stage that works very well.

I think I am going to disable the auto-check of pthread and enable it by  
default with respect PTHREAD_CFLAGS and PTHREAD_LIBS. I will think about  
it later and try to google to get more info about scons.

I found, it was in mplayer-plugins. Here's url what marcus has done to it.

I don't know if I should do it too, since linuxdcpp works very well so far  
with just rename. I don't know what matter. :-)

Seem fixed with the atomic enable. I have connected five different hubs  
for many hours without get disconnect.
