After the recent gettext rebuild-everything episode (you've done that, 
right?), I had a problem like I'd had before with GTK: slow xfce4.4 
startup, slow Terminal startup.  Rebuilding GTK fixed it:

portupgrade -f gtk-2.10.11

It was already at that version, but it seems to depend on order.

Anyway, before you rebuild everything, try rebuilding just GTK.
