Hi WizLayer:

Nope, no particular reason to use portmanager.  I guess I'll one more that 
suffer a bad experience.  I don't see any other solution than re-install every 
thing again.

Top posting is generally considered rude, just so you know...

Any rate, your next option is to locate the missing library, figure out where 
your app thinks the library should be, and then ln to it so that your app 
sees the link...

Any particular reason you're using portmanager (I haven't used it recently, 
but have had bad experiences with it in the past.  I'm one of those who 
prefer portupgrade).  Of course, I'm not saying this is a fault with 
portmanager.  I honestly don't know.  I was just wondering why you were using 
it (ie maybe it's been matured enough that I should check it out again).

Don't know what else to tell you.
