That's not due to the pthreads. I get the same thing on 1.6.1 with
"CC=/usr/pkg/gcc-3.3/bin/gcc make". Curiously, an out-of-the-box
(well, mostly) gcc3 compiler doesn't have the problem. Even more
curiously, after getting the same error while building "mail/imap-uw",
I was able to work around it by descending into each utility's
directory and running "make" (but that's not so easy with "png").
