Failure when upgrading gtk2 2.10.2_1 < 2.10.3_0

The recent upgrade to port gettext breaks everything that links  
against libintl. The best route to fixing this would be to

sudo port -R upgrade gettext

although there might be a faster workaround than that. I say "best"  
route because "port -R upgrade" will force the rebuilding of  
everything that explicitly depends on the port. In this case port atk  
depends on gettext and needs to be rebuilt before gtk2, which depends  
on a working atk can be built.
