That might be the same problem I had building emacs +gtk on 10.5 ppc.
I found this patch that seems to solve the problem if I build from
source outside of ports:
I submitted a bug in trac, but I guess it hasn't been acted on yet.
You could possibly download the source and build it and install
somewhere like /opt/emacs until the port is fixed.
