But, you still have to rebuild everything that depend on atk. atk's shared
library version was bumped a little before or in the middle of GNOME 2.10

This is what current gnome_upgrade.sh would do is collect the list of what
ports depend on glib20 and remove all ports that depend on glib20, then
build/install them back. If your build stopped in the middle of it, then
use the -restart option that will pick up where it stopped that way it
will still know what list of ports you used to have before.
