It was perhaps the recent upgrade from perl-5.8.8 to perl-5.8.9,
which means that libperl.so will have moved from


To fix the problem --

 * run 'perl-after-upgrade -f' -- will fix most pure perl scripts /

 * Compiled software that embeds a perl interpreter (ie. that links
   against libperl.so) will be highlighted by the perl-after-upgrade

 * If the indicated binaries fail to run, showing linker errors as
   you've seen, then those packages need to be recompiled to embed
   the new shlib path into the binaries.

So the following should sort you out:

   portupgrade -f net/ntop
