I did run those commands as suggested...

Hmmm...  That should go too.  Note that I didn't build this system; I 
merely "inherited" it and not having any FreeBSD experience I took the 
cautious "engineers" approach of "it it ain't broke, don't fix it" so I 
confined myself to kernel and security updates, otherwise leaving ports 
strictly alone.

Not found; I sense a generic approach to any more errors of this type :-)
