Thanks :).

I'm also experiencing this issue with editors/emacs-devel port (current
version in the tree). To reproduce this:

0. Make sure you've "WITH_DEBUG=true" present in /etc/make.conf to generate 
   with debug symbols, and you're using the compiler present in the base
   system to build.
1. Install/Upgrade devel/gconf2 to the latest version (i.e. 2.32.0).
2. Install editors/emacs-devel port with Athena 3D Widgets (XAW3D option),
   although I don't think the bug has anything to do with this. Make sure
   DBUS, X11, and GCONF2 options are set as well.
3. Now start emacs (in X11 mode).

If it segfaults for you, then you're able to reproduce this. From my
investigation on this issue, it's due to gconf2, the last stable version of
gconf2 which worked fine for me was gconf 2.28.1, and after that the only
version which works for me is 2.31.7. 2.31.91 doesn't compile, and 2.32.0 is
causing segmentation fault, and 2.32.1 also doesn't compile.

Thanks in advance for your time to test this.
