Just today I build beta version of gaim 2.0.0 from pkgsrc-wip and in turn it 
made the latest expat, gtk2 and so on. Next on the target machine the 
following magic really did help:

# pkg_add -uu gaim

...when I had older versions of gaim, gtk2, expat and so on but all did 
recursively updated just fine *. Try it, just don't forget to ask man about 
pkg_add and specify "-uu" key to be sure packages tree is updated 
recursively :)

*) Except that all other packages including KDE stuff now doesn't run 
complaining on missing library from updated expat-1.x 
package :)
