FreeBSD Port: mozilla-1.7.12_1,2 (Broken port)

After upgrading pango to pango-1.10.1
(which is required by mozilla) and then
upgrade mozilla to 1.7.12_1,2, I get this
when I start mozilla:

 $ mozilla
 Undefined symbol "pango_x_font_map_for_display" 

I then did already twice following:

  # portupgrade -fvrR mozilla-1.7......

which reinstalled mozilla and all it depends on etc.
To no avail.

When I do
 # ldd /usr/X11R6/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin | \
   grep pango =>
/usr/X11R6/lib/ =>
/usr/X11R6/lib/ => /usr/X11R6/lib/

Note that mozilla-bin is NOT linked against
/usr/X11R6/lib/ ; and that is the
library which contains pango_x_font_map_for_display:

 # strings /usr/X11R6/lib/ | \
   grep pango_x_font_map_for_display

So I think this problem boils down the fact
that the executable of present mozilla port
is not linked against
This breaks the port.

When I do
 # /usr/ports/www/mozilla
 # make configure | grep pango
 checking MOZ_GTK2_CFLAGS...
 checking MOZ_GTK2_LIBS...
       -lpangocairo-1.0 -lcairo
       -lpangoft2-1.0 -lpango-1.0

But -lpangox-1.0 is missing!!

I suppose this is a bug in the mozilla port
and needs a fix.
