I cut the sentence short here and makes no sense. What I meant to say
is that it would seem that some binaries depend on dylibs that are
actually part of Perl modules and that seems really weird. I have no
way of finding out exactly which binaries were depending on these


I don't think the message "Scanning binaries for linking errors: 7.9%"
is accurate. I mean I don't think that it's complaining about these
missing files because it's failing some otool -L test but rather
because it's looking up in some port's database and finding that these
files are missing. If it would tell me exactly which one I could try
to fix it so that is what I'm asking: Is there a way to increase the
verbosity or something that would tell me exactly what binaries it's
referring to ???
