More broken ports? Unable to build cups

I just attempted to build cups on my system and received the following

Compiling Gfx.cxx...
cc -Wall -fPIC -O2  -I.. -I/usr/local/include  -O -pipe  -I..  -c
Gfx.cxx In file included from Gfx.cxx:28:
GfxFont.h:59: syntax error before `;'
gmake[1]: *** [Gfx.o] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory
`/usr/ports/print/cups-base/work/cups-1.1.19/pdftops' gmake: *** [all]
Error 1*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/print/cups-base.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/print/cups.
** Command failed [exit code 1]: /usr/bin/script -qa
/tmp/portinstall35759.1 make** Fix the problem and try again.
** The following packages were not installed or upgraded (*:skipped /
!:failed)        ! print/cups    (bad C++ code)

Are all these errors I'm seeing in attempted builds of x11, libbonobo
and now cups actually resident in the ports system or is my system
"special" (i.e. could there be something else hosed somewhere)?  Please
cc me in any replies.

Thanks again,
