libintl.so is provided by the devel/gettext port. Except that at the moment it supplies libintl.so.6. If you hang around on this list for longer than a week, you'll see someone asking a variant on this question, and the answer as oft repeated is: # portupgrade -fr gettext i.e. you need to recompile everything that links against libintl.so Then wait for a few months for the next release of gettext, when chances are the ABI version will be bumped again, and the lists will once again fill with wails of despair "libintl.so.6 not found"... > One other question... when I do a pkg_version -v, some programs are listed > twice, like: > > autoconf-2.13.000227_5 = up-to-date with port > autoconf-2.53_1 = up-to-date with port > > glib-1.2.10_10 = up-to-date with port > glib-2.2.3_1 = up-to-date with port > > libtool-1.3.5_1 < needs updating (port has 1.3.5_2) > libtool-1.4.3_2 < needs updating (port has 1.4.3_3) > > libxml-1.8.17_1 < needs updating (port has 1.8.17_2) > libxml2-2.6.8 = up-to-date with port That's because you've got multiple versions of those ports installed simultaneously. Which is fine, for all of the examples you show, as they are all designed to be able to do that. In answer to your next question: no, generally you cannot get rid of one of those versions and have everything just use the other one -- the *reason* that there are multiple versions in the ports tree is that they are there to support various programs which have to use a newer or an older version.
