Just a quick guess, since you updated to 6.0-BETA4... did you recompiled 
your ports ? Somewhere around BETA3 (or was it BETA2) it was necessary 
to recompile all ports, due to a update of shared libraries of the base 
system...

snip from /usr/ports/UPDATING
20050722:
   AFFECTS: All RELENG_6 and HEAD users of ports/packages, maintainers
            of ports that interact with the compat libraries.
   AUTHOR: kensmith at FreeBSD.org

   The shared library version number of all shared libraries built as
   part of the baseline system has been incremented in both RELENG_6
   and HEAD.  The overall goal is to make handling of the compat library
   infrastructure easier.  Each new release branch will have different
   version numbers for all of the shared libraries and the compat ports
   can simply include all of the shared libraries from the previous
   release.

   If you update your system using normal cvsup/rebuild/reinstall
   mechanisms the old versions of the libraries will still be on your
   system so your old ports executables will continue to work.
   But you definitely should plan on recompiling and reinstalling all
   of your installed ports so they get relinked against the new libraries.
   If you don't take this step as time goes on "normal" updates and
   installs run the risk of having executables relying on both the new
   and old versions of the libraries which would cause big problems.

   It will take some time for the pre-built packages available on the
   FTP mirror sites to be rebuilt against the new libraries.  If you
   want to update your ports using the pre-built packages watch the
   mailing lists for when the rebuilt packages become available.

Dunno wether you've done it :)

HTH,
Marian
