FreeBSD-5.2.1 ports cvsupped yesterday, trying to make install xfce4:

/usr/ports/UPDATING seemed to suggest portupgrade -rf textproc/expat2
so I did that and got a libexpat.so.5 in /usr/local/lib which didn't help

ln -s libexpat.so.5 libexpat.so.4 in /usr/local/lib got it going again until:

a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system

Is there a way around this? Will a real libexpat.so.4 help perhaps?
How could I get it if so?
