sounds like it's not finding the threads library, either the native threads 
or linuxthreads. linuxthreads is a port in devel/linuxthreads. you'd need 
to give -DWITH_LINUXTHREADS to the mysql make if you're using linuxthreads.

(in a test i did on freebsd 4.3 a long, long time ago, mysql 3.x with 
linuxthreads outperformed the native pthreads by a very big margin. i had a 
blog post with my performance results, but have since lost it)
