Well, after :
cvsup base system and ports
build and install kernel and world
and then portupgrade -f all my ports
[ouf ! :-)]
It works now like a charm and my lovely FreeBSD is again fast and stable.
But I don't know what was the problem, and there was no trace of it on any
So its solved !
Thanks both for your support.
See you on the list.
