Would that rebuild the dependencies?

I should also point out that I'm not sure it was a portmanger problem, 
it just appeared while portmanager was doing the upgrade.

I also should note that I think Perl updated; I couldn't do the first 
manual make deinstall && make reinstall of a perl module needed to do 
the update until I re-ran use.perl port.  I then had to manually make 
deinstall && make reinstall several p5 modules needed by the 
spamassassin system.

I'm wondering if "recompiling" the p5 modules spamassassin uses would 
fix the problem, but don't know the command off the top of my head to 
do so, and trying a portupgrade -Rr amavisd-new does nothing.
