Some programs will not run because of a library version bump. Those
programs will need to be recompiled, i.e. rebuild all ports.

You can check this by running 'ldd' on the specific program. Let's
assume that you have zip installed:

$ ldd /usr/local/bin/zip
        libbz2.so.3 => /usr/lib/libbz2.so.3 (0x80065c000)
        libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x80076c000)

If it required libc.so.6 instead of libc.so.7, and there's no
libc.so.6 anymore after the upgrade, you'll need to recompile zip.
