You need to have cairo cairomm pango pangomm installed with +quartz but you
seem to have other versions installed that want +x11.

These ports can install with both +x11 +quartz (the default actually) so
the thing to do is to install them that way and everone will be happty.

sudo port install cairo pango cairomm pangomm

should do it since +quartz +x11 is the default for these ports.


port installed cairo pango cairomm pangomm | grep active

to see how they are installed.  The result needs to be

  cairo @1.14.8_0+quartz+x11 (active)
  cairomm @1.10.0_3+quartz+x11 (active)
  pango @1.40.3_1+quartz+x11 (active)
  pangomm @2.36.0_0+quartz+x11 (active)

Next check to see how gtk2 is installed this should be

port installed gtk2

  gtk2 @2.24.31_0+quartz (active)

if not

sudo port install gtk2 +quartz

Finally make sure that the following are installed +quartz (and active)

gtkmm                          @2.24.5_1+quartz (active)
gtkspell2                      @2.0.16_6+quartz (active)

If you get this far then you should be able to build inkscape +quartz without problems.
