Recompiling of ports is only needed when the port (the program)
is statically linked and those includes the libraries. Usually
program binaries are dynamically linked to the libraries, so a
program loads the library when they are needed. In this case the
reboot takes care of the running daemons / programs to use the
new build of libc.
