Please don't "top post". If you don't know what that means, Google for

What ports did not update (fail)? Did you read the UPDATING file to
insure that there are no some intermediate steps that you should have
taken first? Also, if using "portmanager", you would be better served

	portmanager -u -l -p

It would properly update dependencies and create a log that you could
view. Of course, always start with a fresh update of your ports tree. I
usually start by deleting everything in the "/usr/ports/distfiles"
