The problem is that when you install something for the first time you
end up with a lot of cruft in the ports tree because all the work
directories for the dependencies get left-behind.  When you later
update Gnome with portupgrade (or whatever) the tool cleans as it
goes.  If you have portupgrade installed I would run portsclean -CD,
and start again. 

If /usr is on a separate partition, and you have a lot of space
elsewhere then I would suggest you either symlink /usr/ports there or
set WRKDIRPREFIX. Some desktop ports need huge amounts of temporary
space to build - it doesn't make much sense to allocate it  under /usr.
