Wiping the install and reloading everything did the trick.  Had a problem with ghostscript, but turned out I didn’t get everything reloaded (missing netpbm).  That’s six hours I’ll never get back!  Probably my own fault, but still.  At least I ended Friday with everything working again.

I was hoping I could just jettison everything that uses this, but that’s most of the X11 stuff, and Imagemagick, which I use a lot, depends on these. So, unless I can find older versions of these ports I’m dead until I upgrade my server.
