Upgrading world leads to many system libs being updated, too. When ports
are dependant on these, a recompile of these ports might help.

If you need/want to be sure, sysutils/bsdadminscripts is supposed to
contain a script to check for broken shared libs system-wide and a
ldd(1) on the binary you are trying to run will spit out some libraries
you can the try to find(1).

Hope to have been of some help, cheers, Christopher
