When I last tried compiling it with clang on Lion (except for XeTeX
which I disabled) I think it worked. Some patches were needed at
first, but they were applied two weeks ago.

What didn't work for me this year for the first time in history was
cross-compiling on 64-bit 10.6 for i386 or ppc 10.4. Something
ICU-related breaks and I don't know how to overcome it. (But that
doesn't make any difference for MacPorts, I guess, and hardly anyone
would care.)

This was the error:

However that was "standalone" compilation with static libraries.
MacPorts might have different specific requirements and compiling with
shared libraries might work differently.
