I don't know if there is much point to #1 at this point since
it's been gone for about 2 weeks now.  #2/3/4 sounds fine to me.

In the meantime KF is working on a patch to properly support
PTHREAD_LIBS in KDE's configure scripts.  We plan to commit it
when the freeze lifts, pending PR #55325.

I suggest that people not build ports on -CURRENT for a few weeks
until things get sorted out, unless they're going to fix the
problems with specific ports.
