Thanks.  That fixed it.

I'm not sure, though, how "libraries' was deleted.  Here's what how I
did the ports upgrade, after building the portupgrade port:

1. cvsup ./ports-supfile (stock ports-supfile pointing to
cvsup3.freebsd.org)
2. make index && make readmes
3. portsdb -Uu
4. portsversion -l "<"
5. pkgdb -F (portsversion found stale ORBit; I went with pkgdb default
responses)
6. portupgrade -aRr

Prior to this, I'd installed the lynx port and the epiphany port, which,
of course, brought in Mozilla, XFree86 and Gnome2. Did that not install
the libaries port?
