It looks like you have a problem with gtk2. It may be that the
x11/gtk2/buildlink3.mk file is out of sync with what you have
installed. So things to try:
A) update all of pkgsrc, and do 'make update' in x11/gtk2.
Then try again.
B) Use pkg_comp, and build a fresh set of everything from the same
C) in chat/gaim, do 'make configure, and look where gtk/gtk.h is in
the buildlink include tree, and the real tree. look at gtkspell.c and
see if it's including things correctly. I see
on the libtool compile line, and I think this is translated into (your
command output was line-wrapped-mangled):
and in there should be a gtk/ dir with a symlink to
/usr/pkg/include/gtk-2.0/gtk/gtk.h. It may be that this isn't getting
buildlinked in. To get past the build, you can just symlink it in by
hand after 'make buildlink'
On my system (2.0_RC4 with packages built around 10/12), gtkspell
buildlink bits look ok, and built ok. But I have had gtk buildink
trouble in the past.
In general this is a pkgsrc issue - the buildlink3.mk file somehow
needs to match the installed package, not the source, since it's the
installed version that is compiled against. Perhaps they need to go
in /var/db/pkg? But, I think the real answer is that buildlink3 files
have required versions, and on an incompatible update the required
version needs to be bumped so the API/ABI of the installed version
matches what the buildlink3 file expects. Thus, I suspect there was
simply a bug at some time in the past.
