I've done what you said and could rebuild some packages including gettext and pkgconfig but the previous error message remains for applications running ld-elf. For example gkrellm - which I could rebuild easily - still aborts at runtime with "ld-elf.so.1 : Shared object libintl.so.4 not found". There is no way to install gkrellm2 (because of pango complaining "ld-elf.so.1 : /usr/X11R6/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: Undefined symbol "FT_Get_BDF_Property""). Mozilla does not work nor build anew either. Mozilla-devel aborts during configure warning it does not find libraries and asking to setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH, which does not help.

The other applications seem to work well.
I think also that I made errors with pkgdb -F .

Is there a way to fix this ?

Do you think that a portupgrade of all packages could help ?
How would I recover the correct dependency lists if I corrupted them with pkgdb -F?

In the worse case how could I get rid of all my ports and pkgs and rebuild them from scratch without messing the system ?

I've been upgrading from 4.7 to 4.9 recently. Unfortunately I forgot to
make world for a while , after having cvsuped (sys and ports). In the

but in some cases I had to ignore error messages (e.g. with Qt). It's
after having tried to ugdate pkgconfig without success that I realized
my errors. The port refuse to install and several applications that use
ld-elf.so.1 abort complaining "Shared object lib***.so.4 not found",
where *** can be "SDL", "intl", for instance.

Now I used "make world" correctly but this failure persists. I'm afraid
many ports won't work well or even install. What can I do?

Thank you in advance and merry Christmas!

I don't know what the SDL is but libintl.so.4 was created by an old version of
gettext. The current version produces .so.5. You need to rebuild all of them.
I image SDL is also one of your out of date references.
