Default pthread/portupgrade problems

Just upgraded 6.2 to 7.2-RELEASE. I was following these instructions:

I did update all my ports before starting. Once it came time to recompile the ports, is when I ran into problems. It ended with a lot of ports being skipped or installation problems. When I tried to manually update one it says:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthread
*** Error code 1

In my ports I have ruby+nopthreads-,1 and ruby18_bdb-0.6.5_1 installed. I have searched around but can't find any thing about this...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as i'm going on day 3 trying to get this server upgraded! Thanks.

Which port are you trying to upgrade?

Ports should not be trying to link to -lpthread. FreeBSD ports should use the -pthread GCC flag. Although, you should still have a libpthread.

What is the output of: $ ldconfig -r | grep pthread
