Problems compiling some ports after upgrading to gcc 4.2.0

I think I have no problem with openssl. I also have no crashes of my 
system. It works stable :-)

Again: After build/install world/kernel (05222007) I ran 'make 
delete-old(-libs)'. This removed many files, inclusive 

Now when trying to compile ports in several cases I get the described 
error, see below.

I see this behaviour on three machines, all running newest CURRENT.
