Errors installing konqueror with ports make install clean

I am very new to FreeBSD. I have installed ver 7.0 on a junker laptop I had lying around. I succeeded in getting fluxbox setup and installing several other pieces of software all through ports.

I tried install konqueror by cd'ing into the ports conkeror directory and typing "make install clean" and I received the following errors:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgio-2.0
gmake: *** [] Error 1
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/gio-fam-backend.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/desktop-file-utils.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/firefox.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/firefox.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/conkeror.
*** Error code 1
So what should I do now? Do I need to manually clean anything up? If so how? Is their a ports tool to help fix this?

Since I haven't been able to play with FreeBSD much yet, I can't help you a whole lot except that I know the GCC suite is used in FreeBSD and "-lgio" looks like a linker flag that says "link to the "gio" library, which also shows up as the first message. The fact that the error message says it can't find "-lgio-2.0" screams typo since the "-l" shouldn't show up like that: it's the equivalent of typing "-l-lgio-2.0".

Look for something like that, perhaps in something you modified.

Is your ports tree up to date? If not, update it and try again. If you're not sure what I am referring to, please read:
