for me, I solved this problem with this script, use: sh script
it scans every lib in /usr/local for the string libicui18n.so.38
and than finds the package that has that lib,
finally it builds the ports that have that string.
find /usr/local -name "*.so" | \
while read x
if grep $1 $x
pkg_info -qW $x >> $t
echo found in $x
if [ -s $t ]
portmaster $(sort -u $t)
rm -f $t
Seems a much more sensible approach than rebuilding all ports depending
upon icu. On my system there are 250 targets using portupgrade -fr devel/icu
My guess is your script would have considerably reduced the number of ports.
However I am going to let it complete now the run is underway.
Any ideas why one gets a crash on a second attempt to startx? For more info
see first posting in the thread.
