from /usr/ports/UPDATE, you need to rebuild all ports...

As a result of the upgrade to gettext-0.17, the shared library version
of libintl has changed, so you will need to rebuild all ports that
depend on gettext:
# portupgrade -rf gettext
# portmaster -r gettext\*
Given the scope and sheer number of dependent ports, it may be more
advisable to simply blow away all existing install ports (after
keeping any local configuration changes), and rebuilding from scratch.
