My knowledge about both our rtld and our threads implementation is limited, 
however: I see that linking via -lpthread is what's done on Linux/glibc. 
Linux/glibc is the reference and development platform of a huge majority of 
the software which exists in the ports-collection. Would it be possible to 
keep -lpthread as PTHREAD_LIBS and do whatever glibc does (if it does 
anything at all) to prevent the breakage you describe from happening?
