How to repair a package

Between shutdown and reboot starting xdm gets:
    Shared object "" not found, required by "xdm"
and starting startxfce4:
    Shared object "" not found, required by "xinit" is a module in libXScrnSaver. So after seeing if I could find on another system and not finding an option in "pkg delete" that 
would delete only libXScrnSaver and not the 40 other related packages I tried 
"pkg fetch" and "pkg install -f" on the txz file. That gets a Segmentation 

Do I have any options other than starting over?
