I hit the same error on 7.2-RELEASE. I did recompile all Fortran 
dependencies with gcc44 and removed gcc43, still the error persists.

Having recompiled just with gcc42 from base, I was able to 
finish the build, but running octave does not work, either:

/libexec/ /usr/lib/ version GLIBCXX_3.4.11 
required by /usr/local/lib/octave-3.2.2/ not found

Since was compiled with gcc44 and not with gcc from 
base, I guess it should not try to load /usr/lib/ but 
/usr/local/lib/gcc44/ -- or am I wrong?

Any idea besides recompiling "all ports"? I really do not see the point 
in that, since nothing but the Fortran ports should use gcc44. Maybe, I 
do not understand the dynamic linking with multiple gcc versions 
involved after all.
