The author of gkrellm removes older versions after a short time (a bit
too short for my taste), so when you try to build the port it fails.
You can google for gkrellm-2.2.1.tar.bz2, fetch the file and place it
in the /usr/ports/distfiles directory and the port will build
I sent a mail to the author regarding this subject just before posting
here to ask him if he can keep older versions available from his
website a bit longer.
I recall having this problem before with OpenBSD releases 3.5 and 3.4.
