maybe this has been discussed already, my apologies in that case.

on current r203046 I'm trying to rebuild openssh-portable-5.2.p1_2,1
due to an upgrade from  to

I get this error on sparc64 and ia64 (don't have any other arch to check):

----- End forwarded message -----

many programs installed by this port are not usable
anymore because I deleted the old version of this lib.
Now I can't update the port to use the new version.

What shall i do?

below are extract from ldd output:

/usr/local/bin/ssh: => not found (0x0)
/usr/local/bin/scp: => not found (0x0)
