Default Is something broken in BSD-Gnome2

I was shocked to here that bsdforums was abandoned and wish to see all members of bsdforums here.

I'm trying to install gnome2-lite from ports. I tried it in 6.3 and in 7 but both time compilation failed after about 3 or 4 hours. I'm installing it the way I use to do it earlier, but no luck this time. Is this known or is there a workaround, apart from installing it from packages . I don't remember where it is failing but very much sure that it failed on the same spot all 3 times.

Here is what I'm doing
1. Install the base system
2. Compile and configure xorg
3. Compile gnome2-lite (this is when it fails)
