Broken binary detection

I have tried Google, FBSD handbook and the archives in advance for the 
following, but without luck.

I did a portmanager databases/phpmyadmin -f because installing it normally 
(make install clean) resulted in errors. With portmanager, phpmyadmin is 
successfully installed. However, portmanager upgraded libintl as well to a 
newer version, which in turn broke fetchmail still referring to the old 
libintl library. Question is: is there a way to detect broken binaries and 

As a Gentoo Linux user I know the command revdep-rebuild, which scans each 
binary and library for broken dependencies and rebuilds the corresponding 
packages then. Is there something similar for FreeBSD?

Thanks in advance,
