Problem with package library dependencies after update from 8.4 to 9.3

I am in the process of bringing a neglected FreeBSD 7.2 machine up to a
more recent O/S and have run into a problem with package dependencies.
I used the upgrade option in the FreeBSD-8.4-Releas installer to upgrade
form 7.2 to 8.4 then used freebsd-update to move to 9.3. With the move
to FreeBSD-9.3 I also converted to the new package system and I now have
a number of installed packages that are claiming libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
as a required shlib but there are no packages that provide it. It does
exist in /usr/local/lib.
When in run ``pkg check -Bda'' I get a bunch of messages similar to the
avahi-gtk has require a missing libraries: libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
brasero has require a missing libraries: libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
clutter has require a missing libraries: libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
I have tried a number of things (from reinstalling to deleting and
installing all of the problem packages) to clear this up but nothing has
been successful so far.
At this point, I don't know iflibgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0 is necessary or if
it should be removed as a requirement. I'd just like to know how to
clear this up.
