You know ... I'm in fact waiting for to be committed. If I change
anything in gnuplot today, I'll also need to regenerate all the
patchfiles ;)

But a way more serious issue are those d...n wxWidgets. I wanted to
test a few patches yesterday, only to figure out that I'm not able to
compile version 2.8 any more due to a recent Xcode upgrade. This is
the issue that *REALLY* needs to be addressed, asap:
- Ports depending on wxWidgets*
should either use path-style dependencies or variants instead
- wxWidgets: allow side-by-side
installation of 2.8 and 2.9
- wxWidgets-devel: update to 2.9.5
- wxWidgets should be removed /
replaced_by wxWidgets30
- wxWidgets @2.9.5 universal build fails
- wxWidgets 2.6.4 failed to install

Not considering all the problems that come with re-installation of all
the MacPorts (installing a new beta, preventing ports being fetched
from buildbot ... and probably spending a day just to figure out what
a single port links against, without any visible benefit or
functionality improvement) ... I'm willing to do it, but I would be
grateful if someone who already went through this and knows what he's
doing would send me a list of linked libraries. If not, I would really
prefer to focus on fixing the wxWidgets and getting Geant4 & Gate
released first.
