Recompiling your ports would be best but you may check installed ports
first by using `/usr/ports/Tools/scripts/consistency-check' (an often
overseen script).

Please expect a lot of error messages as this script does the handling
of symlinked files wrong (I wanted to write a patch for that problem
long time ago...).

You may also try a consitency check by using a shell script written by
me, which is badly slow, but works similar to consistency-check:

In any doubt it is recommended to recompile ports.
