This was kind of an experience, as make delete-old-libs almost bricked
my laptop. Apparently portupgrade failed to upgrade quite a few apps,
for whatever reasons. I deleted all cached packages to make sure
portupgrade -P would fetch the newest. I also had to coerce
/usr/bin/objformat to return "elf" as the installed objformat
prevented building many ports that could not be installed as
packages. Anyway, everything seems to work ok now.

thanks a lot
