I solved the problems after a make world. Previous one has been done on Dec. 
I'll describe better you what I was seeing:
first I noticed that most flash objects were not working, and that when it was 
happening a crash in Xorg caused somehow by gdk-pixbuf2 were trapped.
Then I tried to rebuild graphics/gdk-pixbuf2 but the build was failing and as 
far as I can remember it was somehow related to endian.h. A required port, 
devel/gmake was failing too.
Then I tried to run portsnap and update the (few) outdated ports and there was 
an error rebuilding java/openjdk6.
No all the problem are gone away.

Summarizing it was similar, except that I'm on i386, to the one reported in 
the same discussion reported before, exactly here:

So, from what I can understand, I think that what you are suggesting is not 
needed for me.
Do you think I am correct? What kind of problem should the setting for loader 
In any case, thanks!
