I am trying to get PL/python working on postgresql-8.0.  I'm using the default build for all the 
ports, with the exception that I've turned on threads in Python.  When I try to add plpythonu to a 
database using createlang, I get the following error:

createlang: language installation failed: ERROR:  could not load library 
"/usr/local/lib/postgresql/": dlopen '/usr/local/lib/postgresql/' failed. 
(/usr/local/lib/python2.4/config/ Undefined symbol "pthread_attr_destroy")

Here is my current setup:
1. postgresql-plpython-8.0.3
2. postgresql-server-8.0.3
3. python-2.4.1_3
4. FreeBSD 5-stable (src tree from about a month ago)
5. ports tree was from about a week ago

Anyone have suggestions?
