I have not really been following this thread because I thought it was
mostly about pango :-)

Three comments:

  with pkgsrc (with or without pkg_rr) it's hugely important to clean
  out working directories prior to building things.  Whenever I have
  trouble "rm -rf */*/work" is one of the first things I do.

  pkg_rr tries to do 'make replace' in order.  So far all "pkg_rr
  problems" have basically come down to pkg_rr getting confused about
  what to do, and an individual "make replace" not working right.  So I
  usually suggest to run pkg_rr with -n and to do each make replace
  manually, and if they fail report *that* instead of reporting a
  "pkg_rr failure".  This is not about not maligning a tool - it's about
  reducing the problem to the simplest case.

  When dependencies change around, the replace method can fail to work.
