Hi Joe,

My mistake, I forgot to mention that. I indeed updated my ports tree to 
the latest version and already had an ORBit2-2.8.3 port on my system.

Another thing I discovered this morning after having started another 
'portupgrade -Rf evolution-1.4.5' last night (since I spent most of 
yesterday upgrading manually several ports each time trying to make 
trees in the depedencies). Well, it seems that the gnomespell-1.0.5 port 
is now suffering from the 'ORBIT_STUB_GetServant' reference problem too. 
I attached a full build log this time. (sorry for the .tgz, it was 44KB 
uncompressed). Do you need a full log of evolution build as well?
Thanks again for your help
