Hi Daniel, Andrew,

the library /usr/local/lib/ comes out of the devel/pwlib port 
and is requiered by net/openh323 and therefor needed by net/gatekeeper, 
net/openmcu and net/openam.

As i said before, i don't have access to a sparc64 machine running 
FreeBSD. The error was reported by pointyhat, so tweaking /etc/libmap.conf 
is not an option.

If the "pthread_mutex_timedlock" symbol is really not available in the 
default thread library for sparc64, i will mark these ports BROKEN for 
${ARCH} == "sparc64", but first i want to make sure that this is really 
the case.
