PowerPC (iMac G5).

I just built xchat-2.6.8 and it crashes, as well.  How recent is your gtk2+?
I have:

-> gcc --version
powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5250)

I've had no problems with this gcc up until this gtk2 problem (e.g., no
problems with this gcc and earlier versions of gtk2).

My pkgsrc is on a disk image that I back up regularly (e.g., before starting
pkg updates).  So I went back to the image from before this gtk2 update, built
the latest gqview (against gtk2+-2.10.6), and it runs fine.
