I've done what you said and could rebuild some packages including 
gettext and pkgconfig but the previous error message remains for 
applications running ld-elf. For example gkrellm - which I could 
rebuild easily - still aborts at runtime with " : Shared 
object not found". There is no way to install gkrellm2 
(because of pango complaining " : 
/usr/X11R6/lib/ Undefined symbol 
"FT_Get_BDF_Property""). Mozilla does not work nor build anew either. 
Mozilla-devel aborts during configure warning it does not find 
libraries and asking to setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH, which does not help.

The other applications seem to work well.
I think also that I made errors with pkgdb -F .

Is there a way to fix this ?

Do you think that a portupgrade of all packages could help ?
How would I recover the correct dependency lists if I corrupted them 
with pkgdb -F?

In the worse case how could I get rid of all my ports and pkgs and 
rebuild them from scratch without messing the system ?
