Thanks again for the pointers...  Without your advice I would have made
little or no progress.  It would seem I'm getting closer to a working
system, but suspect broken dependencies, etc. are still causing problems.

I removed glib*, gtk* and ORBit/libIDL.  So with fresh gtk12, glib12 and
ORBit installs...  (All built well from ports.)  Now mozilla-headers port
built cleanly (yay!), but mozilla dies complaining it can't find gdk/*,

Quite odd...

>From what www/mozilla says I'd think there's some problem with the gtk12
install, but it should be clean.  What's keeping mozilla from seeing the
gdk/* files?  A mising link, or I somehow botched the gtk12 install?

I swear I haven't had this many problems from gtk/glib...  ever.  Maybe
it's just a bad time for me to be touching ports or packages.  I mean,
I've seen things break, but can usually figure out why.  I'm again at a
loss why mozilla has a -I/usr/X11R6/include and the needed gdk/* files are
in /usr/X11R6/include...  But the build can't seem to see gdk/* inside the
include directory.
