This is the base threads C library replacing libc in pthread applications.
From man page pthread(3):
     The current FreeBSD POSIX thread implementation is built in the library
     libc_r which contains both thread-safe libc functions and the thread
     functions.  This library replaces libc for threaded applications.

     By default, libc_r is built as part of a 'make world'.  To disable the
     build of libc_r you must supply the '-DNOLIBC_R' option to make(1).
