Sure.  First, however, please note that it is (presumably past) time to obtain a working backup mechanism for any system that you care about.

Consider the output of "find /usr/local/lib -mtime -2" (or some other # of days).  You can use pkg_which to identify the port which should have provided a native FreeBSD library; use pkg_delete -f _portname_ or similar measures to more forcefully remove these Linux .so's.
