Sorry, i dont understand what im checking hte manpage to
have it do. Running pkgdb -fu does rebuild the package 
database, but i get the same Bus Error thing from Ruby
as above.

Which listed packages? The output of this grep looks like:
/var/db/pkg/mysql-server-4.1.20/+CONTENTS:@conflicts mysql-server-3.*
/var/db/pkg/mysql-server-4.1.20/+CONTENTS:@conflicts mysql-server-4.[02-9].*
/var/db/pkg/mysql-server-4.1.20/+CONTENTS:@conflicts mysql-server-5.*

But i dont want to remove mysql-server-4.1.20, because this seems
to be the version that is actively running on this machine, and i dont
want to disable it. Same for apache+mod_ssl, which accounts for
alot of the other conflicts.

Also, when i try to delete one of the ports that seemed less
critical, even that didnt work:
~ $ sudo pkg_delete -f jade-1.2.1_9
pkg_delete: package 'jade-1.2.1_9' is required by these other packages
and may not be deinstalled (but I'll delete it anyway):
pkg_delete: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts sp-1.*'

...and jade-1.2.1_9 is still there.

Thank you again for your continued attention, Kris.
