After rebuilding the kernel, world and pkg programs three times I got rid of 
this error but I now get this eror:

/usr/bin/opera: line 72: 18762 Segmentation fault   (core dumped) $OPERA "$@"

In a day or two I will be installing onto a new system and this one will be 
reassigned as a file server so Opera won't be an issue but I sure would like 
to know what I did to cause this to suddenly happen.
