www/epiphany compile problem with WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel

I've been trying to upgrade epiphany-1.0.7_3 for about a
week with the mozilla-devel (1.7b) srcs.  Several attempts
each one stopping at the same point shown below.

I do have mozilla-1.7.b,2 itself compiled & installed.

Right now I'm unable to get to the Epiphany website to
see if this is a known bug (our state govmt network sux).

I set all the mozilla-devel knobs such that the features
will be enabled
(e.g. setting WITH_FOO=yes
 and *not* setting WITHOUT_FOO ;) .
Also have the optimizing CFlags knob turned on.

Here's the failing snip:

In file included from EphyEventListener.cpp:29:

--->  Skipping 'x11/gnome2' (gnome2-2.4.2) because 'www/epiphany' (epiphany-1.0.7_3) failed

I've left the work subdir intact (renaming it)
if something is of interest there.

For the time being, I'll disable WITH_MOZILLA to let it
default.  Epiphany did get upgraded (compiled and installed
okay) with 'plain' mozilla+headers (not tested yet tho).

Eventually I will need to test the smb:// support with our
Wynderz[tm]2K systems. <sigh>

BTW and FWIW I've read several OSX users having bad
experiences with mozilla-1.7b; they've gone back to 1.7a
until the beta bugs are ironed out.

Let me know if I can do anything to help, please.
