After its recent update I rebuilt the "pth" package which caused a rebuild
of the "gtk" package. When I tried to start "xchat" it crashed and got
stuck because "gnome_segv" crashed, too. I tried other GTK+ applications
and discoverd that at e.g "ethereal", "gimp", "mozilla", "xchat",
"xtraceroute" and many other more crash. The only GTK+ application which
still works is "bidwatcher". I tried to get a stack trace of "etheral" and
found that it crashed in "gdk_im_open". A look at its source code didn't
reveal any problems.

cd pkgsrc/devel/pth
make update

Sorry, I don't know.
