This is exactly why I made a port for OpenBSD. The shared libs on
community driven operating systems bump quickly. By making a port, the
build is automated every 2 weeks and put on the FTP servers, linking the
libraries -current is using at the time.

You can try symlinking the missing libs, but its a hack and probably
will break at some stage.
