Most projects on SourceForge organize their files in folders. If dict is such a project, then you should specify here which folder the file is in, to avoid redirects. See https://trac.macports.org/wiki/howto/AvoidRedirects

Assuming LIBTOOL is the file to be run, it should be the absolute path (${prefix}/bin/glibtool).

The default mode for xinstall is 0755, i.e. executable. Conf files should not be executable, so you should specify mode 0644 (-m 0644).

Moreover, users are expected to edit conf files, but by installing the file in this way, it is registered to the port, which means any user customizations will be lost if the port is deactivated or upgraded. Instead, you should install a sample conf file, and print instructions telling the user how to copy that sample conf file to the real one. See https://trac.macports.org/wiki/PortfileRecipes#configfiles
