Don't forget this is a major version update. You must upgrade all ports because there is possibly some change in library versions, API or any other part of system. Might use: portmaster -a -f which direct portmaster to process all ports and force rebuild of all ports. And again read /usr/src/UPGRADING and /usr/ports/UPGRADE for more information.
