Your attempting to build an old version of seahorse (2.24.1).  Seahorse 
was upgraded to 2.26.2 in r51200 yesterday along with a number of other 
GNOME ports.  Please update your ports tree to the latest, upgrade any 
outdated ports and then try again.

sudo port selfupdate
port outdated
sudo port upgrade outdated
sudo port clean gnome seahorse
sudo port install gnome

or your might start with something smaller like

gnome-platform-suite  (base libraries and tools for creating GNOME apps)
gnome-desktop-suite (what's necessary for a basic GNOME desktop)

Also see for information on how to 
configure your computer to run GNOME.
