Yes, and I've already mailed them.

In the meanwhile, this should get you going:

cd /usr/ports/devel/imake
make USE_GCC=any all deinstall install clean
cd /usr/ports/graphics/xfig
make clean
make install clean

This procedure worked for me on 9.1-RELEASE amd64, where it would fail
when imake was built with clang (from ports), as Chris already confirmed.
