Thanks for that tip. Here's output of one of the programs that doesn't run:
ldd /usr/local/bin/fastest_cvsup
ldd: /usr/local/bin/fastest_cvsup: not a dynamic executable

BUT, it is executable and using the exact path to the program still gives
this error:
/usr/local/bin/fastest_cvsup: not found

Yes, I did re-install the port too. No dice.

Again MOST all programs run except for this one and maybe a couple others
that may be causing buildworld to fail.

Strange!
