Like a proper n00b, I didn't even know there was such a directory. I
followed the upgrade FAQ at freebsd.org on the assumption that it was a full
set of instructions. Thank you very much for this tidbit. I'll upgrade
ruby and check out that dir.

The problem only seems to be with X11. I tried running several commands in
console mode that I can normally run from any location and they all worked
fine. so far startx seems to be the only thing that won't run like it used
to. I read something about shells having to be rehashed to update the PATH
lines? I run in bash if that makes a difference.
Thank you very much for your help so far.
