GORM not compiling from ports

Hello everyone,

I was up to learning a little Objective-C and wanted to install GORM
from ports (/usr/ports/devel/gorm), which is a clone of NeXT Step's
Interface Builder (as far as I know).
However, the build stops with the following error message.
I think that some underlying library is causing a problem. Can anyone
give me a hint?
Here's the tail of the output of 'sudo make install clean':

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/gorm.

Thanks in advance,

If cars had improved at [the computer industry's] rate, a Rolls Royce
would now cost 10 dollars and get a billion miles per gallon.
(Unfortunately, it would probably also have 200-page manual telling how
to open the door.)
