I'll try that and see if it helps. I did pkg_delete the specified
packages (I've never experienced "make deinstall" working. It always
errors that the packages/ports are already installed and can't be
uninstalled, and that I should try make deinstall...

That looks like the same list I have. thanks for passing it on.
