Portupgrade won't upgrade

I'm not sure: I think the ldconfig_compat port is rather basic; I'll have 
to open the box and look inside it, I guess.  I'm hoping that somebody 
else gets there before me though, 'cause I don't know the innards of ports 
at all well.  I've already tried `make deinstall`, anyhow.

I'm going to guess that you don't actually have ldconfig_compat installed: 
I'm still on 4.11!

Yes, I fear it has been forever!  The box I was running my ircd on upped 
and died some time late last year (an old 1G SCSI disk decided that it was 
tired, I guess), and, well, um, ... it's time I dropped by!  I'll come by

Don't think so, the ruby update went smoothly.  I actually ran
 	# portupgrade -R portupgrade
and all the other stuff went through just fine.  Indeed, I'm pretty sure 
that ldconfig_compat just crept in through a `portupgrade -R` somewhere.

Sigh.  When ports have fits, they're painful!
