Yes. it was not here. please see the commit log by kan.
Even I havn't notice this recently.
I tried to remove _end patch after finishing our ooo-2.0-devel port, last
year, I noticed OOo runs without _end patch. So I googled around and
found his commit.

I don't know. Only port that might affect by this is OOo. However
rtld.c is very fundamental part, I cannot imagine what will happen
to you...

IMHO, it is safe. you don't have to recompile everything. just
only recompiling OOo might be enough. But I'm not 100% convinced.

Safest way to do is just upgrade your FreeBSD to newest version,
or 4-stable user, cvsup your src tree to up-to-date one and rebuild world.

thanks a lot,
