Well, you could either try to debug the applications that dont work, or take 
a look in the UPDATING file again, maybe they have descriptions concerning 
your applications...

you could also try to do a cvsup and then a portupgrade -af and look if it 
goes through and things work afterwards again...

hope that helps you any further...
