Yeah, but normally doesn't portupgrade move any old libraries to 
/usr/local/lib/compat/pkg , so you're covered for backwards library 
compatibility normally?

If you haven't rebooted since installing portupgrade, your ldconfig might not 
know about where portupgrade copies those old libraries.  You could try running 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/000.pkgtools.sh to straighten that out.
