: This is a FAQ.  Most likely you have stale headers or libraries
: installed; use the example in the pkg_which manpage to search for
: them.  Then rebuild phoenix and all its dependencies (e.g. portupgrade
: -Rf).

Would that be the Phoenix FAQ or the FreeBSD FAQ?

I'll give it a shot, but this is a brand new, clean system installed from
(disk one of) 4.8-RELEASE.  I hope I haven't trashed my libraries _already_.

Consulting: If you aren't part of the solution, there is
a lot of money to be made in prolonging the problem.
