Not a very helpful answer... but the way the ports tree and OS has been 
pushed into breakage on older systems, the only solution now seems to be 
'try and find a precompiled package' otherwise, freebsd-update to the 
latest and then update the ports or erase and start again... Sorry for 
your pain.
