Thanks, I'd pretty much got to this point myself, but it's good to hear 
confirmation it works for someone else too.

However, I do find it a bit strange that one of the premier applications 
has not been made safe wrt threading libs, especially after the major 
efforts made over the last year to get the ports tree into shape ready 
for libc_r NOT being the default lib.

Maybe there's time before the freeze tomorrow to change these flags to 
be the CORRECT default values for 5.3-RELEASE? (similarly for gcc32, 
which is required for building OOo).
