Well, to get mozilla to build with the latest glib, I did a link I said 
not to do, i.e., 
ln -sf

It is am using the new headers. It was the link part of the build that 
tried to use the wrong library. I am still trying to figure out what is 
wrong. That worries me less than a header for the old version of 
libintl being used to reference the new version.

I just fought that battle on an old system using packages from a working 
system. Are you in for fun :). 

I finally did a portupgrade -Pufr expat twice before I got a good 
upgrade from 3.1.4 to 3.2.1. Copy the list of ports that don't update 
and use that file as a reference for things to fix.

The kde people's suggestion was probably an easier one. I had so much to 
update since I hadn't update that system since 4.9 was released.
