I updated my ports without having to reboot. Don't know what's
wrong with your machine. Usually ldconfig is run when a library
is installed/updated.

Did you prove your installed ports consistency using 'pkgdb -F'?

Did you maked all ports clean before you try to update them?

Did you forgot to cc ports@?
