I think that /etc/defaults/rc.conf's ldconfig_paths variable has
contained /usr/local/lib since at least February 1999, which is the
start of the src/etc/defaults/rc.conf CVS history.  Thus, all you need
to worry about is running ldconfig(8) by hand, in which case you should
not forget /usr/X11R6/lib, /usr/local/lib, and any other library
directories where ports might have installed stuff, such as MySQL's
/usr/local/lib/mysql/.

G'luck,
Peter
