It looks like ...pkgsrc/multimedia/gnome2-media is broken.

The basic problem is that GNOME is a huge piece of software with
tangled interdependencies.  KDE suffers from similar problems.
You can expect problems in trying to build/update the complete set
from time to time.

I used to try to build KDE and GNOME from time to time just to keep
up with what they were like, but they haven't built cleanly for me
even once since I switched to the AMD64---though i confess that I
haven't tried in a long time.
