You build ports on top of a working base. Now your foundation, aka the base
has gone wrong. What you got to do is to get the base working again.
Actually the first thing you should try is, to compile the base and the
kernel (buildworld, buildkernel, etc) and install them properly. Check every
stage complete without any error. If you can reinstall your base without any
error, your base is working. Then you can rebuild your ports.
If you cannot, recompile your base, ie. if errors develops, then copy
necessary libs, etc. from the live CD till your recompile the base completes

This is your last option.
