	I got caught a few weeks ago by coredumps in flwm and synergyc with
libc_r (the packages had been built on a box with libthread_xu and
installed on one that still had libc_r linked). I'd be happy to see the
links switched during upgrade.

	Is there really any point in keeping libc_r around anymore.
