The proper solution is to rebuild all ports that depend on the old
library, so that it eventually gets purged from all binaries on your

This really isn't a good idea.  While linking old shared object versions
to the new shared object might work just fine, subtle API changes can
cause otherwise good applications to break.

I'd remove these links, and the libintl.so, then hunt down all binaries
that are still linked against libintl.so.[12], and hit them with
portupgrade -f.
