I found this but not on the first attempt.

Why the #$%^&* couldn't the message have said how to find which binaries 
require a certain shared library?  It's not obvious!

pkg shows only those shared libraries that come from added packages but not 
from base OS.

I notice on this list there was a possible plan to make the whole base OS into 
a package, maybe for FreeBSD 12?

Now I could follow the example given under "man ldd".

I have updated many of the old ports but have many more to go, don't want to 
rebuild those already done.

I can't find any options/flags in pkg or portmaster to show those 
ports/packages installed after or before a specified date.  I believe 
portupgrade had such a facility.
