Indeed, that seems to be the problem. The same happened (gtk not
detected) when I proceeded and built gnome-vfs, except that in that case
the build aborted completely. Here is what I got after adding your line
above and retrying GConf:

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** Could not run GTK test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved GTK since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the gtk-config script: /usr/X11R6/bin/gtk-config

The reason is that <gtk/gtk.h> is not found:

(from config.log)
configure:7841: gcc -o conftest -O2 -mieee -I/usr/pkg/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -Wall -DG_DISABLE_CHECKS=1 -DG_DISABLE_ASSERT=1 -I/usr/X11R6/include/gtk-1.2 -I/usr/pkg/include/glib/glib-1.2 -I/usr/pkg/lib/glib/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/pkg/include/db3 -I/usr/pkg/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib conftest.c  -lintl -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk -lgdk -L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -lgmodule -lglib -lintl -lXi -lXext -lX11 -lm >&5
configure:7828: gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory
configure:7844: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
#line 7826 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

#include <gtk/gtk.h>
#include <stdio.h>

main ()
 return ((gtk_major_version) || (gtk_minor_version) || (gtk_micro_version));
  return 0;

I do however have that file, and its directory is -Included:

$ l /usr/X11R6/include/gtk-1.2/gtk/gtk.h 
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  4155 Oct 30 21:29 /usr/X11R6/include/gtk-1.2/gtk/gtk.h

the file of x11/gtk does seem to include that file too:

BUILDLINK_FILES.gtk+=   include/gtk-1*/*/*

but it does NOT show up in the .buildlink directory.

I did notice that when I started my building activity, xpkgwedge was
built. I remembered reading something about that (it becoming default).
Could that explain matters? Lots of other related header files are
linked from .buildlink, so it's probably just a problem specific to x11/gtk.
