I just compiled arts with gcc34 and got the same error, so that is the problem.

Usually, such problems happen because gcc34 does not pre-define the
__FreeBSD__ variable, so the ports which depend on that variable wind up
being mis-configured.  I can often grep through the code for __FreeBSD__
and fix the problem quickly if it occurs in only one or two places.

In this case I don't see __FreeBSD__ anywhere in the arts code, so it must
be something else.  I'll try comparing the config.log from gcc2 with gcc34
and see if I can spot anything that might be a clue.

If you just want to get your system working with few headaches, you should
stick to building ports with gcc2 for the time being.  Using gcc34 can be
quite difficult.
