I did the same on some boxes and I'm having a lot of troubles too...

# pkgdb -L
Look for lost dependencies:
undefined method `map' for #<String:0x00000801e60218>

# libchk
/usr/local/sbin/libchk:96: formal argument cannot be a global variable
/usr/local/sbin/libchk:100: formal argument cannot be a global variable

# portupgrade -Rf libchk

(I think the ignored packages should have been reinstalled... however 
this was only a try at fixing the previous error).

I also issued "portsdb -uU" *after* the portupgrade update, but to no avail.


P.S. This is on 7.3/amd64 and 8.1/i386.
