I'm specifically thinking of the directories that has to be emptied or 
deleted.

Thanks

Using portmaster to do a complete reinstallation of all your ports:
            1. portmaster --list-origins > ~/installed-port-list
            2. Update your ports tree
            3. portmaster -ty --clean-distfiles
            4. portmaster --check-port-dbdir
            5. portmaster -Faf
            6. pkg_delete -a
            7. rm -rf /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg
            8. Back up any files in /usr/local you wish to save,
               such as configuration files in /usr/local/etc
            9. Manually check /usr/local and /var/db/pkg
               to make sure that they are really empty
            10. Re-install portmaster
            11. portmaster `cat ~/installed-port-list`
