I did this:

# cd x11-toolkits/libbonoboui
# make

and got the output shown below at the end of the process.

If I read this correctly (and I probably don't) it says libbonoboui failed 
because gtk2 is unavailable. ?!? Wait - I ran "portupgrade -fr gettext" on 
April 7 to fix the gtk2 problem, then it failed due to libbonoboui, and 
libbonoboui failed because of gtk2... a Catch-22?

I'm still awfully confused :)

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

Please report the problem to gnome at [maintainer] and attach the

a good idea to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system
(e.g. an `ls /var/db/pkg`).
