I have ported that version as net/skype-devel with all the necessary 
lib depends. Please update your ports tree then read UPDATING 
20080318 and follow the install directions there. I have seen the 
problem you're describing and it was caused by a hosed linux_base 
install and was causing skype to fail. You should probably deinstall 
everything linux, reinstall linux_base-fc4, then update as directed 
in UPDATING. Please note that linux_base-f8 is still in development, 
and your mileage may vary using that version.
