I could not reproduce the freeze opening a random svg document and 
adding a few layers. I am on 8.0-RC2 with all ports up to date.

Your ports seem not to be up to date. At least for 15 of the 
dependencies you listed, I have got newer versions installed. Moreover, 
22 of your dependencies are not listed as dependencies for me.

confirms that your dependencies do not match the ones of the current 
ports tree.
