Openoffice and thread libs

Hi y'all,

Pardon me barging in here.  ;)
I'm seeing the same JVM Heap problem when portupgrading OOo as
mentioned earlier.

The 'files/patch-config_office' looks like where we need to change
PTHREAD_LIBS once & for all.
That patch is changing the original OOo 'configure' script under its
FreeBSD section, starting at line 26 of that patch file itself.
It will set PTHREAD_LIBS to '-lc_r' if OSVERSION is 500016 or greater.
It will override your environment at this point.
We probably want '-lpthread' there, don't we?
(Note: with OSVERSIONs less than 5.x,
 that parm is missing the 'l' on purpose.)

This file is created by configure. I'll try this out myself and fix
the port.
