Ruby oddity (pthreads)

I found the rskkserv (ports/japanese/rskkserv; Simple Kana to Kanji
conversion server program in Ruby) eats much CPU time.  This results
in increased load average (over 1, here).  It also prevents one of
powerd(8) merits (i.e., battery life improvement) on cpufreq-awared

When I disabled pthreads support for Ruby by WITHOUT_PTHREADS knob,
the problem has gone.  I confirmed it on FreeBSD 6.0 and

I would like to see ports/lang/ruby18 will be built without pthreads
support by default.
