This is why I'm at a loss here. I upgraded the base system from the  
sources and then used portupgrade -af to rebuild all installed  
packages. Right after upgrading the base system, essentially  
everything from X to Emacs was broken (I tried, just for the heck of  
it). After running portupgrade, these problems were all fixed - except  
for xfburn.

I'll try that, as I've never seen this before. I definitely didn't do that.
