gtk20 doesn't depend on gdk-pixbuf according to the port, but the gtk2's 
configure script doesn't agree.
In short: the gnome-hack magic is not working for this as it doesn't add 
gdkpixbuf to LIB_DEPENDS. You might wanna report this to the freebsd-gnome 

To make it work for you:
Just do portupgrade -f graphics/gdk-pixbuf, then portupgrade -Rf gtk20 again. 
There's a change you'll run into the same with a different port this time, 
then rinse and repeat.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
