Sorry, I just realized I totally missed this question.  Are you
still seeing the problem?

Looking at the web archive of this thread, I do not see anything
stand out.  What happens if you remove gcc- and try
to build everything with GCC 4.5?  

It may be worthwhile doing a 'portupgrade -a' or similar and rebuild
all ports with one and the same compiler before trying again.
