The real question is why do you have binaries depending on old system
libraries.  The answer is probably that you upgraded from a previous
branch of FreeBSD (e.g. 4.x -> 6.x) but neglected to rebuild all your
installed ports, so they now have an inconsistent mix of old and new

portupgrade -af or similar to repair the damage.
