This is the situation.
Currently I run FreeBSD 7.1 installed from scratch on a free disk. The first problem started when I tried to install netbeans 6.1; when I realized that a new release (6.5) was available as a package, I uninstalled 6.1 and I "pkg_add -r" netbeans 6.5. Than I "pkg_delete" netbeans 6.5; later:
#portsnap fetch update
but now netbeans 6.5 is not available in the port tree.
The strange behaviour of bash ended when I put the 'candidate' in it's original form in /etc/libmap.con.
More, I have to confess that I don't undestand Aryeh's suggestion:
"Then you will need to limit it to diablo only by placing it in the exec path in 's"
I'm considering the possibility to install again, as this is an "experimental" installation. Maybe somethis went wrong ...
And, more, I'm having problems in upgrading from KDE 3.5 to KDE 4.

I am beginning to wonder if the problem isn't a little more involved. Did
you upgrade the machine from FreeBSD 6.x to 7.x without rebuilding all your
ports? With bash breaking it sounds like it was built for a 6.x box as well,
which leads me to wonder how many other ports are the same way.
What you also might look into is installing the misc/compat6x port. However,
in any event, we need to get down to the bottom of what happened to create
the situation. The most obvious thing I can think of is an upgrade of the
system from 6 to 7 without a corresponding rebuild or reinstall of all
