Firefox do not install on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT/amd64 UP

A week ago I did a buildworld and after rebooting I tried to start 
either Firefox 2.0.04 and Thunderbird as they are both standard 
applications of my daily work. Both applications did not start, via 
top(1) I recognized on both clients a "STATE  ucond".
Well, I thought this could be due to a newer kernel and userland so I 
simply recompiled both Firefox and Thunderbird - with no success. Both 
installation processes get stuck in "===>> Building chrome's registry 
... " and never come back.

I do have two other boxes running FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT, one i386 SMP and 
another amd64 SMP and on both neither Firefox nor Thunderbird show that weird 'ucond' STATE in top(). I never dared 
recompiling both applications so i can not say whether the problem is 
related to the one box (UP).

Does anyone have recognized this problem? How to fix it? Without having 
the specific port installed, how can I rebuild every dependency? If the 
port is already installed, someone simply need to type 'portupgrade 
-vrRf port", but is there any 'make' equivalent in the native
