Depending on how you updated webkit-gtk the old library could have been
deleted and you will have to recompile Fancy so it links against the
new library.

That is one of the things I don't like about using portupgrade and like
programs, they delete the older version of the libraries which makes it
harder to recompile programs that depend on them as you have time.
