hello again
the packages are :

ports/graphics/librsvg2
ports/x11-fm/nautilus
ports/x11-wm/ccsm
ports/x11-wm/compizconfig-python.

at least those are what i have left after portupgrade -k.

btw, after posting earlier, i tried portupgrade and caught a glimpse of a 
message from librsvg2 saying it uses/relies on said firefox2 for gecko.

thanks for yr reply, excuse me for panicking
