Compiling scanlogd and dependencies (libnids, et al).... problems.

After a week of trying to resolve these issues, I want to ask if anyone 
has had luck getting this lot to compile correctly. 

I am looking to get scanlogd compiled with libnids.  This is the last 
error I get:

cc -shared  .libs/libgiofam_la-fam-helper.o 
.libs/libgiofam_la-gfamfilemonitor.o  -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib 
-Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib 
/usr/local/lib/ -lgio-2.0 /usr/local/lib/ 
/usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/  -march=pentium4 
-Wl,-soname -Wl, -Wl,-retain-symbols-file 
-Wl,.libs/libgiofam.exp -o .libs/
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgio-2.0
gmake: *** [] Error 1
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/gio-fam-backend.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/net/libnids.
*** Error code 1

I tried installing binary packages from (not my 
preferred method) - but it doesn't link even against the binary libnids, 
tons of errors.

This is on a recently updated FreeBSD_7.0 system - two different systems 
(different configs) have the same problems above.

I'd appreciate any pointers - or just info that these are known errors.
