I've noticed that the lang/gcc43 port's Makefile includes a builtin
call (ulimit -d) that is not available in the csh shell (but is
available in sh and bash).  If csh is the shell in use when the port
is built, the port build will fail unless you define WITHOUT_JAVA as
previously stated.  However, this issue results in a different error
condition than the one stated by the original poster.
