Probably be nice to bump __FreeBSD_version too, just for fun.

The right thing to do is to file a PR when this stuff breaks. This
process will actually be a good thing, since ports should not have been
compiling on -current with -pthread for a long time now.

BTW, several ports have already been fixed, and the fix is not
difficult. I do the following in my ports:

        _at_ ${CP} ${WRKSRC}/configure ${WRKSRC}/configure.Patched
        _at_ ${SED} -e 's#-lpthread#${PTHREAD_LIBS}#g' \
                -e 's#malloc.h#stdlib.h#g' \
                ${WRKSRC}/configure.Patched > ${WRKSRC}/configure

Any occurences of -lc_r should be changed to ${PTHREAD_LIBS} too.
