The cannical answer to this problem is to recompile and reinstall all ports that depend on gettext. This ensures that they will link against the latest version of the libintl.so shlib. The simplest way to do that job is: # portupgrade -fr devel/gettext It also seems to be the case that the developers of the gettext package are far too enthusiastic about updating the shlib version number. Ideally that should occur only when there is an incompatible change to the ABI (application binary interface) provided by the library, and not as some sort of parallel to the package version number.
