When this happenned to me, I forced a portupgrade of some font related
package, IIRC.  You could always use the big hammer:

portupgrade -fr gnome*

I may have used the big hammer myself.  My gnome stuff seems to have
been updated about all on about the same day.

Hmm, scrollkeeper is jogging my memory.  Something was messed up with
the permissions of the /var/db/scroollkeeper stuff or maybe it was
a corruption of some sort.  When I was watching what happenned with
portupgrade and backtracking the ports that failed it all came back
to scrollkeeper somehow.  I think I blew away some of the files in
/var/db/scroolkeeper/TOC then portupgrade -f'd scroolkeeper.
