Thanks for the suggestion, but I believe this is not the cause of the
SIGSEGV in avahi-daemon.

I was aware of the move of libiconv into the base system, and when I
upgraded to 10.0-RELEASE, did exactly as you suggest: I removed the
libiconv package and forced an upgrade of all ports, so that they'd
link against the base system's libiconv.

I've further verified with ldd "/usr/local/lib/lib*.so*" that I have
no shared libraries left in /usr/local/lib that were built with
dependencies on the old /usr/local/lib/ (That is, this
ldd command gives no "not found" errors.)

I therefore suspect that the cause lies elsewhere. Where exactly, I
have unfortunately not yet ascertained. Other suggestions, anyone?

(FWIW, there is also discussion of this problem, which is being
experienced by others, on the forums: .)
