I thought all had gone well untill I started getting lib-XXX.so4 missing file here and libphp.so missing there. I'm guessing that the update process has deleatd some shared libararies which are still required.

Some of your ports did not get rebuilt as 7.0 binaries. You need to
track down which ones they are and rebuild them (ignore anyone who tells
you to install compat6x, it will only mask your immediate problem and
may cause others). If you saved the portupgrade -af output it will tell
you which ones failed to rebuild. Otherwise you can look for files that
were not modified since before your rebuild attempt.
