The ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20/files/patch-gtk_gtkiconcache.c patch causes xfce4 applications to take a VERY long time to start up and use 100% CPU.
With a complete xfce4 installation on a dual P-III 1GHz system 1GB of RAM, it takes 7:24 to start an Xfce4 session with this patch applied. If gtk+ is installed without the patch, the same login takes 0:21. Further individual Xfce4 applications consume 100% CPU while starting. Terminal takes 0:49 to start with the patch vs. < 0:02 without
Remove ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20/files/patch-gtk_gtkiconcache.c and reinstall GTK+
How-To-Repeat: Install and use an Xfce4 desktop

Remove a patch that cause some GTK+2 (mostly xfce4) apps to start up too
long and consume 100% CPU. If anyone want to revisit with improvement on
this patch, I personal think it should be take up to upstream first before
we can re-add it. Bump the PORTREVISION.
