Well, I'm not running gnome, I'm using x11-wm/pwm.

I have already deinstalled firefox pkg, so it is not possible to use
portupgrade. (?)

The failure was caused by old libIDL package - when compilation of this 
port failed, I've installed libIDL binary pkg from which
caused the last firefox compilation failure.

After deinstalling and recompiling libIDL (after recompiling bison,
because this was the reason why libIDL compilation failed), 
firefox-1.0.4,1 compilation went fine.

Summary: take it as an example of user stupidity.

and thanks for the pieces of advice,
