I've installed last weekend a 7.0R, did portsnap fetch/extract and fired
up my script to run in BATCH mode through the ~200 ports I wanted have
installed on the box; when I came back late night and was hoping all
went fine, some of the ports failed as well with gio-fam-backend; it
took me some time to go to /usr/ports/devel/glib20, deinstall and
install it fresh which changed it from glib-2.14.2 to 2.16.x (don't know
the x from the top of my head now); after this all was fine again;

really, I did not understand how this was possible after portsnap
fetch/extract on a real new system, just installed from boot CD;
