It is possible that the a different version of the library exists
on the system and the version of pine that you are trying to run
is not built to look for it.

Here is what you should do.

Find out if "*" exists on the system by typing either of the
following at the command prompt.

locate libpico
find / -name "*" -print

If you find, say,, then change t the directory that the
library is in and type the following.

ln -sf <whichever libpico you found>

If this doesn't prove successful, take a look at the man pages:

pkg_info(1), pkg_add(1), pkg_delete, and

and delete and reinstall the application.

Hope this helps.
