It's a quotation from "Master and Margharet". It means (not literally,
but here) that the thing that sentenced you was already done and there's
little you can do about it (I guess the rest about it is OT, so you
should read the book to find out more:).

You might not have to reinstall FreeBSD from scratch, you could just try
wiping out /usr/local, /usr/X11R6, /var/db/pkg and starting all over
again (but that's rather close to reinstalling).

If you will want to recollect what ports you have (so that, when
reinstalling, you don't miss anything), something like 

$ ls /var/db/pkg>~/portsList

will help (surely before you delete /var/db/pkg).
