Would I see it on the pci bus or where?

This is an old IBM Aptiva. I'm not really sure if it uses Microchannel
and I don't really care if it becomes unsupported but I'd like to know
if the instability has anything to do with it -- probably due to running
ports built with _stable and now world is release... It does work...
maybe there is a command to reinstall all the ports and dependencies
installed (and no others)?
