I see.  Since that time, there have been very few changes to the
version of the base system used to build the packages for 8, but more
to some of the ports that you mentioned, so probably the difference
that you observed is due to the latter, if it isn't caused by some
local change on your own system.

If you believe that the error arises from a problem other than your
particular configuration of gdm and its dependencies, or at least is
likely to affect others, then it would be helpful if you submitted a
problem report:


after having first looked to see if a similar problem has already been
reported, via:


or other searches of your own.
