GTK or Pango problems after upgrading on -CURRENT

Yesterday I did a cvsup for ports and attempted to run portupgrade -R on 
gaim.  I had trouble building the gtk2 dependancy until did a cvsup and 
rebuilt my 5.2.1 world and kernel.

After installation of world and kernel all of gaim's required packages 
upgraded except security/nss-3.9.1.  It continually fails with...

FreeBSD5.2_OPT.OBJ/shlibsign -v -i 
Fatal error 'Spinlock called when not threaded.' at line 83 in file 
/usr/src/lib/libpthread/thread/thr_spinlock.c (errno = 0)
Abort trap (core dumped)
gmake[2]: *** [../../../../dist/FreeBSD5.2_OPT.OBJ/lib/libsoftokn3.chk] 
Error 134
gmake[2]: Leaving directory 
gmake[1]: *** [libs] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory 
gmake: *** [libs] Error 2
*** Error code 2

So I ran a portupgrade on gaim without -R switch and it successfully 
built and install.  Unfortunately when I launch gaim I see...

Fatal error 'Spinlock called when not threaded.' at line 83 in file 
/usr/src/lib/libpthread/thread/thr_spinlock.c (errno = 0)

I'm not sure this is the same problem but now when I start programs that 
use GTK I see...

Error reading modules file
** (firefox-bin:63429): WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically loaded 
modules were found. Pango will not work correctly. This probably means
there was an error in the creation of:
You may be able to recreate this file by running pango-querymodules.

Also, I'm missing fonts in my apps that require GTK2 fonts (Eclipse).
Googling and reading /usr/src/UPDATING has not shed any light on the 

Assistance greatly appreciated.
