messed up?


You build ports on top of a working base. Now your foundation, aka the base has gone wrong. What you got to do is to get the base working again. Actually the first thing you should try is, to compile the base and the kernel (buildworld, buildkernel, etc) and install them properly. Check every stage complete without any error. If you can reinstall your base without any error, your base is working. Then you can rebuild your ports. If you cannot, recompile your base, ie. if errors develops, then copy necessary libs, etc. from the live CD till your recompile the base completes without errors.

So my only option would be to go and install/reinstall all of them from the
scratch? Building anything that needs Ruby for example takes like 24 hours
on this machine :(

This is your last option.
