messias# uname -a
FreeBSD messias 6.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 #5: Fri Feb 16

The system was updated with cvsup + make buildworld + make buildkernel 
on Feb 16. So it should not be a problem.

The ports tree was updated on Feb 16.
I also ran "portupgrade -a", it finished on Feb 18.
PulseAudio was installed from the ports tree today, it went fine.

messias# pulseaudio --version
pulseaudio 0.9.4

Yes, I'm aware of that -plthread is missing, probably 
/usr/local/lib/libpulse.so is missing that. So do you think it is a bug 
in libpulse.so? Should I contact ports at freebsd.org?
