If it were me, I would uninstall your present version of drupal and
install the version available in the ports tree.  CD to the
correct directory, and then run: "make config" first to insure it is
configured to your liking. The run:

        make install distclean

That should correct the situation. You might have to make some
configuration changes from your original installation though. That is
one of the major problems when installing sans the ports system.


Piece of cake!
