It is quite possible that you caught the small time window just
after the GNOME upgrade, in which was missing two
lines that recorded LIB_ and RUN_DEPENDS.  Thus, even though you
specified gtk20 in your port's Makefile, just didn't
add a dependency on libgtk - so your port's build did not find it.

Since this was corrected a couple of hours later, I strongly suspect
that the next automated build will go just fine.
