I expect the reason you won't find a port verifier is that the usual
way to recover from a situation like yours is to reinstall them all:

# portupgrade --all --force

This might take longer than trying to verify them, but it has the
advantage of not needing a lot of attention (use -DBATCH to skip
config steps) and when you're done, the packages have all been updated
and fixed.

Doing a general port verifier is a pain because the scripts called from
make install can run arbitrary programs.

R's,
John
