gnomeapplets build failure

Hello. I've been using gentoo for awhile, but when a disk failure meant a reinstall of my 
OS, I figured I'd give FreeBSD a shot. I got my system up and running fairly quickly by 
using all binary packages off the CD. Liked the quickness of that, but I've been 
struggling to get everything upgraded to the latest versions from the ports tree ever 
since. Maybe I've been doing stuff wrong, but I've had about a dozen build failures, 
mostly due to portupgrade's reluctance to upgrade some packages. I've slowly whittled away 
at these by deinstalling/reinstalling and I'm down to two packages... gnomeapplets and 
gnome2-lite. But now I get a real build error and I'm stuck... something to do with acpi. 
I'll paste the output below. Would appreciate any help.
