You need to work out why the update to libbonoboui-2.4.1 failed.  Once
you've got that to compile correctly you should then be able to get
the rest of the gettext dependents to update.

Hint: once you've solved the libbonoboui problem, you can restart the
original update without recompiling everything again by:

    # portupgrade -fr gettext -x '>=libbonoboui'
