 This one is not an option. The functionality of a port should not change
 depending on which other ports the user happens to have installed at build
 time. if inkscape will link against ImageMagick, it needs to declare a
 dependency on ImageMagick.

 Any of the other three options would be acceptable. Option 1 would be the
 best and the most work, but if the patch were accepted upstream, there
 would be no more need for ongoing maintenance of it by us. Option 4 is the
 easiest but least flexible.
