Kris, as i said, i made portupgrade -faP ...and in update process i saw that
many ports upgraded. I don't why old version become as current version. Now
i've installed compat6x (thanx Stefan Lambrev) -> it's works...but anyway
now i will try fix pkgdb and reinstall all necessary ports.

If the portupgrade -faP completed successfully and your bash was 
installed from ports then it should have been rebuilt.  If you have 
non-port 6.x software installed then you need to add the compat6x port 
to keep it running.
