The way it works is that you define your gecko preferences something
like this

   WITH_GECKO=  xulrunner firefox thunderbird seamonkey mozilla

and the port will use the first one that's also contained in it's
USE_GECKO list. Unfortunately for you, this port has:

   USE_GECKO= firefox mozilla seamonkey

so xulrunner isn't supported.
