I believe you can use the ports system as is. In theory at least you
should get the same or newer packages that way.
But I doubt that you need to rebuild the browser and plugins. The point
is that I used "portinstall -PPR" some time between January 20 and 24.
And it is probably the -R that has sucked in some updated library.
I see a couple of Linux libraries last updated on January 22. Packages
with "linux" in their name on my machine comprise the following:
%pkg_info -Ex linux
You could check whether you have the same versions. And we could make
other such checks if anyone has an idea what to look for.
But it needs to be said that I also downloaded other things in those
four days. And, most significantly, I settled some problems with my
Nvidia driver. Maybe this was what made the penny drop.
