I've seen that few times already, basically some gnome's libraries
weren't upgraded properly (not only pango). For a "quick" fix you can
either find out which one is to blame or upgrade everything on which
broken port depends, in case of wireshark:

# portupgrade -fR wireshark

The proper method, however, is described in /usr/ports/UPDATING
(20061014) and use that if you're not sure what above quick method can
brake ;)
