FreeBSD Port: squirrelmail-1.4.9a - missing strings.php?

I'm not sure if this is the source of your problem, but do you also have 
mail/squirrelmail-compatibility-plugin installed?
If so, you have to reinstall it after you upgrade squirrelmail because 
the compatibility plugin patches strings.php of the original 
squirrelmail installation. If you install another version of 
squirrelmail over it, it will override the patched files.

Hope that helps,
