Port gst-plugins-base is failing during the generation of GObject
introspection data because
you have gobject-introspection installed and ports that gst-plugins-base
depends on have
not been configured to generate introspection data. 

GObject introspect disabled for now for gst-plugins-base in r72514.

You should be able to re-sync your ports tree and proceed as follows

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port clean gst-plugins-base
sudo port install gnome-desktop-suite
