I think there is a problem with gcc44, use gcc45 instead.
If you want to check which port installed lang/gcc44, try
pkg_info -xR gcc-4
For example, on my box:
% pkg_info -xR gcc-4
Information for gcc-220.127.116.1101223:
Try to update ports which depend on gcc44.
I think that recently some (most?) of them
moved to depend on gcc45.
