I had the same problem but with the solution of decreasing kern.maxvnodes
to 3/4 of the original value, the problem seems solved.

I'm currently running Xorg 7.2 from the experimental port tree (see
freebsd-x11@) and I'm compiling all the ports of gnome2. The compilation
starts about 8 hours ago (pfff... that's too long) => no problems. In this
compilation, I'm using differents FS : port tree is on ZFS+compression and
work-dir is on UFS.
